Being a teenager is tricky at the best of times. Your body is changing and hormones are raging around your body - adding PDA to the mix makes this even harder! You may often feel misunderstood by others, and find it hard to understand yourself too.
Whether you've just been diagnosed with PDA -or are a seasoned PDAer keen to know a bit more - this warm and wittily illustrated guide will give you a better understanding of your amazing brain and why you are so good at some things, but find other things tricky. It will help you to advocate for yourself better, understand your anxieties, manage rejection sensitivity dysphoria, explain to your family and friends and others what you need (and what drives you up the wall) - and navigate school or alternative education.

Press Reviews

  • Viv Dawes, autistic advocate

    I absolutely adore this book! Any young person (who is or thinks they are PDA) reading it will learn so much about PDA, about themselves and about life, in such a way that they will want to keep picking it up. I couldn't put it down I enjoyed it that much. It's informative, supportive, practical and so encouraging. But it's also fun too and it doesn't make any demands of its reader either. It's an invaluable book in this era where there are so many pressures and demands on teenagers like never before; Laura gives sound and sensible advice in a very careful and thoughtful manner that totally respects the reader's autonomy and authenticity. Eliza's illustrations are just perfect, evocative and they really help to sensitively communicate the issues tackled, some of which are tricky issues for young people. Together Laura and Eliza have created something so very special and I highly recommend every parent of a PDA teenager buy this book.
