The author's 13-year-old autistic son, Gus, develops a friendship with Siri, Apple's 'intelligent personal assistant.' Siri always has the right answers to Gus's incessant stream of questions about the intricacies of national rail schedules, or box turtle varieties, and she never runs out of patience. The book chronicles one year in the life of the family. (publisher)
