I definitely appreciate your concern and thank you for asking the question. While I'm not myself on the autism spectrum, my brother is, and MAYBE IN PARIS is inspired by our relationship. He also deals with mental illness. I wrote a guest blog post for my friend, Jill MacKenzie, detailing more of the history of and the story behind the book. I couldn't find the link to that guest post, but I just posted the text of it on my own blog so I could link it here -- http://rebeccachristiansen.com/post/1...

(There is a small #OwnVoices aspect to the novel in that the MC, Keira, suffers from (undiagnosed, but clearly manifesting) anxiety, which I myself have, but I personally don't feel that truly counts as #OwnVoices. It's just an aspect of myself I share with the character.)

Thank you again for the question! :)(less)

    Well this was definitely a hot mess. And while I was actually wary going in because the blurb alone sounded problematic...I wanted to be wrong??? Because I have a curious infatuation with Paris, which Kiera had too so I was like "SURELY WE MUST GET ALONG LIKE SISTERS". Haha. No. Except...

    This is one of those books that will stay with you long after you close the back cover. It's the story of Kiera, a teenager who is trying to process her brother, Levi's, recent suicide attempt and subsequent autism diagnosis. The author wrote it from her own experiences of living with ...

    *Copy provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review* This novel was an exercise in anxiety. Oh. My. Keira's younger brother, Levi, has tried to commit suicide. He's also been newly diagnosed as having Autism. All this happens just at the end of Keira's school year, durin...

    Maybe in Paris tackles the tough subject of what it?s like to have a sibling who is autistic and suicidal, with honesty, compassion, and humor. Keira loves her brother Levi but she also wants the things many teens want and need like love, adventure, and most of all the chance to beco...

    I honestly don't have much to say about this book. To be completely real with you, I didn't even get all the way through it. I read about half of it and skimmed the rest. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I did not like this book. Maybe in Paris was such a disappointment to me...

    An adventure to Paris with her brother who recently tried to kill himself and is sick. Sounds like a interesting book right down my alley. At the beginning I couldn't put this book down. Once Keira got to Paris the book got really boring. It was just a lot typical Paris talk that any t...

    This book is beautiful in any way. I love to read books taking place in Paris. Reading this one was like reading my own thoughts. All the enthusiasm Keira has I can understand it all. What I love about this book is that it combines a 'typical' teen story with some real life problems....

    A sweet and moving story of a girl who has a simple dream - to visit Paris and to fall in love there - but whose life is anything but simple. This debut is a love letter to Paris, for sure, but more than that, it is also a wonderful tribute so the power of sibling love and commitment t...

    Ultimately cute. I had a few issues with the treatment of Levi, I'll admit, and with Kiera's view on meds. The writing is strong and descriptions are great, which really saved this book for me. ...

    This is one of those books that will stay with you long after you close the back cover. It's the story of Kiera, a teenager who is trying to process her brother, Levi's, recent suicide attempt and subsequent autism diagnosis. The author wrote it from her own experiences of living with ...

    So cliche and there were way too many negative statements about mental illness and autism. Also, there was so much about this book that was unrealistic. Obviously, there's usually a suspension of disbelief when it comes to fiction, but there was too much in this book I couldn't excuse....

    Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings! **Actual Rating: 2.5/5 Stars** Maybe in Paris was the kind of book that had a really strong premise, and I expected a lot from it. As a book that features a character on the Autism spectrum,...

    My friend wrote a book and it was a very beautiful book! I'm still crying. ...

    Now I really, really want to go to France. I mean...that has always been a dream destination for me, but now I'm twitching because of how bad I want to go. Anyways... The story follows Keira is an American girl who is addicted to anything French. She loves the language, the food...

    I was intrigued after reading the blurb for this book. The plot seemed very engaging and I am deeply interested in learning about Autism. I loved how the entire story wa centered on Keira whose younger brother Levi is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and how their family comes t...

    Maybe in Paris by Rebecca Christiansen is about a girl, her autistic brother, and their trip to Paris. There are many different reviews for this book. Some say this book is horrible and that Keira is just a terrible person for feeling the way she does toward Levi. Others believe this i...

    This was wonderful! Loved it! The story has humor and depth, and the characters are utterly realistic and believable. ...

    Gross treatment and representation of mental illness. ...

    I loved this story about Keira, whose family life is strained by the mental health needs of her brother Levi. After a particularly harrowing incident, Keira decides to take Levi with her on her dream trip to Paris, both in hopes of repairing their relationship and of giving him an exci...

    Note to self: Will never read due to ableism. See Cait's review. ...

    one of the worst books I've ever read. what a whiny main character!! ...

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Keira?s younger brother Levi has tried to take his own life and which this leads to a new diagnoses of Autism or even the word schizophrenia was used as a possible diagnoses. Keira?s dream was to spend the summe...

    *Copy provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review* This novel was an exercise in anxiety. Oh. My. Keira's younger brother, Levi, has tried to commit suicide. He's also been newly diagnosed as having Autism. All this happens just at the end of Keira's school year, durin...

    Maybe in Paris tackles the tough subject of what it?s like to have a sibling who is autistic and suicidal, with honesty, compassion, and humor. Keira loves her brother Levi but she also wants the things many teens want and need like love, adventure, and most of all the chance to beco...

    I honestly don't have much to say about this book. To be completely real with you, I didn't even get all the way through it. I read about half of it and skimmed the rest. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I did not like this book. Maybe in Paris was such a disappointment to me...

    An adventure to Paris with her brother who recently tried to kill himself and is sick. Sounds like a interesting book right down my alley. At the beginning I couldn't put this book down. Once Keira got to Paris the book got really boring. It was just a lot typical Paris talk that any t...

    T H O U G H T S: never mind the instalove and ridiculous plot. if your autistic brother has survived a suicide attempt and months in the psych ward, how stupid do you have to be to think that he's "just quirky" and that traipsing around paris without adult supervision is a good idea...

    This book is beautiful in any way. I love to read books taking place in Paris. Reading this one was like reading my own thoughts. All the enthusiasm Keira has I can understand it all. What I love about this book is that it combines a 'typical' teen story with some real life problems....

    A sweet and moving story of a girl who has a simple dream - to visit Paris and to fall in love there - but whose life is anything but simple. This debut is a love letter to Paris, for sure, but more than that, it is also a wonderful tribute so the power of sibling love and commitment t...

    Ultimately cute. I had a few issues with the treatment of Levi, I'll admit, and with Kiera's view on meds. The writing is strong and descriptions are great, which really saved this book for me. ...

    Well this was definitely a hot mess. And while I was actually wary going in because the blurb alone sounded problematic...I wanted to be wrong??? Because I have a curious infatuation with Paris, which Kiera had too so I was like "SURELY WE MUST GET ALONG LIKE SISTERS". Haha. No. Except...

    1 ?Really?? Stars ARC via NetGalley Thank you, Sky Pony Press! First of all, I don?t rate books one star on a regular basis. I really don?t. I feel horrible every single time I do it, and since I don?t like making myself sad, I try not to do this often. But I had...

    This book sounds awful and gross and I am mad. So mad. ...
