I love this book! Although the title seems misleading. As a girl with Asperger's, this child seems a bit lower on the spectrum. Therefore, while I was searching for help and answers in this book, it wasn't helpful, because I couldn't relate to much of the book.

However, the story is incredibly well-written, and I love how poetic the author is. She is also very sensitive to the idiosyncrasies of the autistic individual, which is encouraging. We autistic people aren't weird, just different! We just see and interact with the world differently than you do. :)
