Description

Surely my way is not always wrong, just because it's different from other people's ways? I mean everyone's way is weird to someone...

In her 24 years Emma has experienced a lot, and much of this has been coloured by her autism and social anxiety. Funny and self-aware, this collection of Emma's diary entries capture her hidden thoughts and insightful explanations as to why the world can be such a puzzling place.

Wry observations on social rules, friendships, relationships, and facing changes give compelling insight into how Emma confronts challenges, and her determination to live life to the fullest. Helpful advice at the end of each entry also give practical strategies for coping with common issues.

Reviews

'Emma's diary entries are humorous, intimate and inviting - like spending time with a close friend. The commentaries that follow are filled with practical suggestions for coping with the challenges of social anxiety, sensory sensitivities and much more, making this an accessible and invaluable book for parents and autistic people alike.'
- Cynthia Kim, author of Nerdy, Shy and Socially Inappropriate: A User Guide to an Asperger Life

'A really fantastic way to get into the mind of an Aspergirl - the first person diary accounts are vivid, brief and illuminating. The mum's observations and advice really help you take what you've just learned and put into simple practice easy strategies for a smoother, more stress-free life.'
- Rudy Simone, author of Aspergirls: Empowering Females with Asperger Syndrome

'This book is based on diary entries from a 20-something lady with ASD, making it very personal. I am roughly the same age as the author and share many of her experiences, so I gained a lot of empathy from this book. I also enjoyed the follow up comments and advice from her mother, which were presented after each entry.'
- Alis Rowe, Founder of The Curly Hair Project - a social enterprise supporting women and girls with ASD
