What is it like to have Asperger's Syndrome? Enter the world of 12 year old Joel Portsmouth and he will tell you in his own words. Joel lives in Sydney, Australia and after he was diagnosed he decided to write a book which would explain his experiences to anyone interested in Asperger's or Autism in a young person. Life with Autism has many variations, but everyone on the autistic spectrum shares at least some of Joel's experiences and has similar difficulties in the wider world. Joel's graphic, humorous, startling, generous and occasionally heartbreaking explanations of his behaviour and coping strategies are an eye-opener. This book is for all ages, whether family, friends, professionals, kids who are themselves on the autistic spectrum, and most importantly for "neuroptypical" people to whom "ASD" is uncharted territory and who want to know more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good reading for parents and aspies alike. A very open and truthful book written so my aspie (8yo) son can read and relate to and feel like he isn't alone in his early struggles. Good work Joel.
