Alis Rowe, Founder of The Curly Hair Project - a social enterprise supporting women and girls with ASD
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.
