WHAT REVIEWERS SAY
With crisp, unsentimental prose, Kramar draws the reader into her overturned world after her second-born son is diagnosed with Sotos syndrome ... Kramar becomes his steadfast champion. After he begins school and gets involved with theater, she is only one of his many fans.
-- Laura Moriarty, American Heart
Kramer gives voice to feelings and thoughts that many would be to scared to acknowledge. Searching for Spenser follows her through her journey dealing with the struggles of a developmentally delayed child along with the rough twists and turns of life. We get to follow Spenser and learn from him how to focus on living in the here and now and the impact that he had on those around him.

Dealing with a special needs child it is a tough situation, and even tougher to explain to people how you feel ... props for writing this book.
