The transition to middle school is daunting to most, but for students with autism spectrum disorders, it can be a veritable mine field of hidden curriculum rules, social misunderstanding, cliques, etc. And that’s even before cracking open a book! Based on her own experiences, Haley Moss, a teenager with Asperger Syndrome, now in high school, shares what worked and what didn’t work for her, to help others avoid some of the pitfalls of fitting in, making friends, and doing well academically. Discussion of each topic is followed by a section called What I Did, brimming with helpful advice. This reader-friendly book is illustrated by the author, already an accomplished artist.
