    She had been driving east for hours on an unfamiliar highway I in an unfamiliar state Pennsylvaniasearching with increasing desperation for a place to stop for the night. This world is made for everyone. Gayle, a youthful forty-one-year-old, wore a purple camisole and capri-length cargo pants that revealed some of her tattoos. He chirped with glee, smiling to himself.

    Even when he knew it was wrong on an intellectual level, he just couldn't stop. Because what people with Williams crave so much is love, unconditional love — like the kind of love they give. She could feel the eyes of the men on her, the only woman in their midst, and on Eli, who was now rocking back and forth on his heels with excitement. The Boy Who Loved Too Much explores the way a tiny twist in a DNA strand can strip away the skepticism most of us wear as armor, and how this condition magnifies some of the risks we all face in opening our hearts to others. The story told belongs to Eli, a boy who was born quite different from most little boys. Not only had the door been unlocked, it had been advertised as such.

    Gayle noticed his sinewy arms, his muddy work boots. He surveyed the landscape enthusiastically, oblivious to the seediness of the place. Eli grinned at him. He lifted his artwork and admired it in the dome light, which Gayle had left on for him.
