Book review: ‘Cowboy and Wills’ by Monica Holloway

“Cowboy and Wills” is a charming memoir about a couple who come to their wits’ end when they learn that their 3-year-old son, Wills, has “autistic spectrum disorder.” Wills is extremely high-functioning; he not only talks a blue streak but picks up on jokes and uses family slang. His main symptoms seem to be an aversion to certain textures he hates bubble bath, a fear of other kids and crowds, a hatred of loud sounds and a tendency to break down in sobbing fits when any of these things occur.
