Jackie Marquette wrote this book in 2001 about the 2 year process of her son’s transition from high school to independent living. Although independent living does not mean doing on one’s own, Jackie now 18 years later refers to his supported life in living in his own home, employment, and accomplished abstract artist in his own self employment business as interdependent living. She hopes to inspire and engage the reader with typical life struggles and joys that many face during this abrupt time.
