When author Cammie McGovern's oldest son was diagnosed with autism, she looked for an outlet where he could be with other children with similar difficulties. That led her to form the group "Whole Children," an after-school and weekend program for children with disabilities.

Now, a decade later, those kids spurred her to write the new young adult novel "Say What You Will" (excerpt below).
"Having been surrounded by all these terrific teens with disabilities and seeing how much they wanted relationships and love as much as their typically developing peers, it felt like time to write a story about that," McGovern told Here & Now's Robin Young.
