When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love and respect. Finding someone to fight along her side wasn’t even on her list, and she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.

But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home—the Abbots.

Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?

stacy’s review

It’s not very often that I read a book I can compare my life to. I generally read as an escape, a way to get out of my life for a brief amount of time. But not long ago I got a book recommendation from a friend that I know would never steer me wrong. So I bought How we deal with gravity by Ginger Scott.
There were so many aspects of this book that mimicked my own life. So many times I put the book down and said: “Wow, it’s like she was watching my daily life while she wrote this book!”
As some of you may know, I have a son with Autism. I am his biggest fan and my toughest critic! I felt so much for Avery the heroine in the book. Sticking to a routine, and trying your very hardest not to upset the balance. It’s not always easy to be an Autism mom…but it will always be worth it!

Excerpt

“Avery told me you blew it,” she says, completely deflating me and annoying the fuck out of me at the same time.
“Yeah, well, what does Avery know,” I say, flipping through my ESPN app just trying to find something else to occupy my attention. Funny how many times I’ve asked myself what Avery knows over the last 48 hours. Turns out she might just know me better than anyone.
“My god, Mason. Are you really that clueless?” Claire asks.
“Apparently,” I sigh, continuing to flip through some story on human growth hormone lawsuits and baseball. Claire’s not taking the hint though, so I close the app and push my phone back in my pocket to give her my reluctant attention.
“You, like… really have no idea, do you?” she says, with this faint, cocky smirk. I’m starting to hate this chick.
“Nope,” I say, folding my arms up a little defensively now. Claire’s smile gets a little bigger, and now she’s scooting closer. She starts looking around, making that face chicks make when they’re gossiping. For some reason, it’s starting to make me nervous as hell, so I start looking around, too.
Finally satisfied that we’re alone, she props her chin up on her hand, cupping it a little for even more privacy. I’m starting to think she’s about to tell me that she’s a transvestite, she’s acting so strange—when she drops an even bigger bomb.
“Avery was totally in love with you,” she says, a half-whisper. She says a few other things after, about how Avery used to write my name on her notebook and shit, but all I keep hearing—over and over—is that Avery Abbot loved me.
Avery Abbot… loved me?

Where the fuck was I?
