Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten
Lawyer Danielle Parkman is at her wit’s end. Her son, Max, is a whipsmart teen with high-functioning autism who has shut down, is using drugs and lashing out. Danielle takes him to Maitland, a premier psychiatric hospital, where she receives a devastating diagnosis and then finds Max, bloodied and unconscious at the feet of a patient who has been brutally stabbed to death. Danielle refuses to believe that Max committed the crime and sets out to find the real killer.
