Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About

A Teenage Girl with High-Functioning Autism Shares Her Experiences

CEC Yes I Can Award Winner!

Middle school is an intimidating time for most students, but for students with autism spectrum disorders, it can be a veritable minefield of hidden curriculum rules, social misunderstandings and cliques - and that's before they even get to the academics! In Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About, a teenager with high-functioning autism relates her own experiences in middle school. Aimed at young teens, Middle School tackles the issues that girls this age care about: fitting in, making friends, wearing the right clothes, succeeding academically and more. The book's "for teens, by teens" approach makes it an easy, fun read while giving readers practical tips that they can use in their everyday lives. Haley - already an accomplished artist - also illustrated the book. Preface by Susan J. Moreno. Foreword by Diane Adreon, PhD.

Customer Review: Beanu - Wow..I wish I had books like this when I was that age. I wish I had been diagnosed much, much earlier than I was (at age 30) and would have learned the things then that I know now. Middle school was the beginning of the scary part of my life. I suddenly started feeling deep depression in 7th grade and an insecurity and loneliness I didn't know before because of my social difficulties. These feelings continued, more or less, through my 20s, driving me to dangerous depths at times, until finally at 30 I was diagnosed and learned about Asperger's; and learned about myself in turn, and found guidance to develop a career that fits me. If I could spare any girl on the spectrum the hard times I went through, I would do it, and I want to try to do it by recommending this book.

Customer Review: Amazon customer - I read this after my grandson started middle school and he has yet to read it. It is written by a young girl and geared toward girls with asperger's starting middle school. It is well written for one so young and points out a lot of pitfalls and how to overcome them. Granted girls have different issues than boys, but most of what she writes applies to both. I may not understand asperger's, but this has given me insight as to how to possibly help with t hose rough years of middle school or junior high.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - I purchased this book for my daughter that is Autistic. She really enjoyed reading it. It opened her eyes to things and helped her recognize a lot of things she was missing out on. I like that the book was written by someone her age which made it a lot easier for my daughter to comprehend. It wasn't like reading an instruction book; it was more about real life.
