Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten.
Single mother and lawyer Danielle Parkman doesn't know what to do anymore. Her son Max has always been a handful. He is an ultra-smart teen with high-functioning autism. When he starts using drugs and exhibits violent behavior, Danielle decides to have Max assessed at a top-notch psychiatric facility.
Max soon becomes more violent and the assessment indicates he has severe behavioral issues that mean a long-term stay at the facility. When Danielle finds Max unconscious and covered in blood at the feet of a patient who has been fatally and viciously stabbed, Danielle soon becomes an accessory to the crime.
Separated from Max and afraid of the person he seems to have become, Danielle must discover the truth--no matter what her investigation uncovers.

The cover on the ARC is different than that of the published book. It shows a woman reaching out to a child, but all we see is the child's hand. They are separated by glass, with what appears to be woods behind the child.
