    I’m just going to repost what I have in the description in case you don’t see it

    I haven’t read this book for a very very long time so it’s like I’m giving another first impression


    It was hard to say anything without spoiling it


    Sometimes I have a little problem communicating and when I’m really excited or have deep feelings or sometimes just randomly it’s hard for me to express them


    The book was amazing and is a definite must read


    It shows the difficulty through communicating and difficulty connecting with people when you have a disability

    When I must say again that I am so many things to say about this book. But I really feel like people should really should read it understand themselves .

    I've read that book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was sad, though.

    Another good book is Mockingbird, by Kathryn Erskine.

    I love Mockingbird despite some of the outdated info in it. I read this one for year 8 book club and some of them were awestruck by it. I think it related helps them understand a lot of things.

    Autists should write novels that aren't centred on their identity, if they can write.
