A Rude Awakening

A Rude Awakening

Author: Amelia Chin & Joyce Hee
Publisher: Amelia Chin
Published: 2014
Pb 208pp

Unravelling some spectrums of autism through the short, captivating accounts of a mother’s own experiences, this book is an inspirational read and an eye-opener. The perseverance of a mother’s love triumphs against all odds to see the unlocking of a maze – the little-known atypical world of autism.


“In this book, we are allowed into the honesty of Aaron’s struggles; his questions of ‘why me?’; his own spiritual development; his inspiring progress and determination to learn actions and behaviours that would make him appear ‘normal’, to fit in like everyone else. The result:  he has publicly and officially lost his autism stigma.”
- Pastor Anne Iuliano (Sydney)


“It is a book that everyone must read. It will enlighten us on what the ‘power of love’ can accomplish. Read it, understand it, experience it, and declare it!”
- Rev. Wong Kim Kong, JMN (Kuala Lumpur)


“A must-read for families coping with autism! This book offers pragmatic suggestions for coping with the uncertainties in the patterns of behaviour of autistic children. Autism has such a wide spectrum that plausibly no two cases are alike.”

- Dato’ Leela Mohd Ali, Trustee and CEO of PENYAYANG (a Malaysian NGO)
