This book raised the bar for me when it comes to Autistic representation. I'm Autistic myself and i thoroughly enjoyed this book. I recommend it to pretty much everyone. Its a very much needed book. I particuarly like to see ableism actually tackled because often i do not feel it is fully addressed.
