My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow! “How we Deal with Gravity” by Ginger Scott really just blew me away. This story is so touching and heartbreaking at the same time.
Having had close friends who deal with Autism I was both nervous and excited to read this story. I have to say that Ginger really captured the core of the unknown brilliance of a child with Autism. She pulled on my heart strings and left me in tears multiple times. This story deals with love, life, laughter, and loss and makes you feel every emotion in between.
Mason and Avery are a brilliant couple. This story reminds you that you need to let go and sometimes your path doesn’t always take the same course you are expecting and that can be a wonderful thing! I am a sucker for the bad boy tamed by the good girl but Avery wasn’t your typical naive “broken” protagonist. She is strong because she had to be. She is selfless and loving and I fell in love with her character!
Please please continue Avery, Mason and Max’s story Ginger! Thank you for helping to bring awareness!

“How we Deal with Gravity” Overview:
When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love and respect. Finding someone to fight along her side wasn’t even on her list, and she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.
But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home—the Abbots.
Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?
