Publisher's Summary

Some heroes wear capes. Some prefer sensory sacks.
Emmet Washington has never let the world define him, even though he, his boyfriend, Jeremey, and his friends aren't considered "real" adults because of their disabilities. When the State of Iowa restructures its mental health system and puts the independent living facility where they live in jeopardy, Emmet refuses to be forced into substandard, privatized corporate care. With the help of Jeremey and their friends, he starts a local grassroots organization and fights every step of the way.
In addition to navigating his boyfriend's increased depression and anxiety, Emmet has to make his autistic tics acceptable to politicians and donors, and he wonders if they're raising awareness or putting their disabilities on display. When their campaign attracts the attention of the opposition's powerful corporate lobbyist, Emmet relies on his skill with calculations and predictions and trusts he can save the day - for himself, his friends, and everyone with disabilities.
He only hopes there isn't a variable in his formula he's failed to foresee.

A moving continuation

Of the first volume. Yes this is a gay romance but much much more. The reader continues to be superb. In fact this is a case of the reader adding to the story in giving greater depth and feel. Like Heidi Cullinan's other books there is an element of campaigning for cause but don't let that put you off listening. I found it highly emotional

Another wonderful narration from Iggy.....

Although this wasn't quite as good as Carry the Ocean for me, and therefore gets 4.5 stars, there was another magnificent audio narration from Iggy Toma. His Emmet and Jeremey are spot on, David and the other characters too; the baddie was portrayed with a typically slimy voice and attitude [git]. I pray to all the Gods that listen that this series continues, and yes, there were several teary moments from me...especially chapter 16. Wonderful stuff!!
