M is different. She knows she’s not the same as everyone else, and some things are just too large and cause too much anxiety. Why is it that she feels so different?
Written by a group of teenage girls at the famous Limpsfield Grange school, all of whom are autistic, M is for Autism is a story rooted in the authors’ life experiences.
It bridges the boundaries between fiction and self help in a really useful way for children and adults going through their own diagnostic process.
Beautifully illustrated with absolute nail-on-the-head accuracy for what life as an autistic girl is like, this book is a must read for any autistic girl, her family and friends.
I would also say that autistic boys and adults would also find it useful – I say this as a 27 year old who hugely connected to it. Suitable for children aged 7+.
