Summary: "The message from our book club members over the years has been clear: "We want to read more about real life things. We're not kids." So, we wrote this book of short stories in order to cover an array of adult topics in a way that would be understood and enjoyed by people with IDD. Furthermore we set out to create a book that differs from other Hi-Lo (high interest-low reading level] fiction on the market in that its written with this particular group of adults in mind. In fact, many of the characters in the stories have IDD, although this is not always explicit." - INTRODUCTION
