    the first in her group of books about her life experiences.

    ive always been a bit wary about reading anything from donna williams,as there has been contreversy as to whether she actually has autism or is it just the personality disorders she was diagnosed with.

    @toothless
    I read several of her books and found them
    very interesting. She had a rough childhood,
    treated similar to a dog, I thought.

    Considering all the sensory issues she
    had, it surprises me that she managed to
    live to be able to learn and to enjoy life, and
    not just be in a constant state of confused
    misery.
