NEW! Can You See Me?
Tally has never been embarrassed by her autism. But middle school is making her feel like she needs to act like someone else. Inspired by the co-author's own experiences with autism!
A coming-of-age story about learning to celebrate yourself―and teaching the world to recognize you, too―perfect for fans of R. J. Palacio's Wonder!
Tally isn't ashamed of her autism―even if it complicates life sometimes, it's part of who she is. But this is her first year at Kingswood Academy, and her best friend, Layla, is the only one who knows. And while a lot of other people are uncomfortable around Tally, Layla has never been one of them―until now.
Something is different about sixth grade, and Tally now feels like she has to act "normal". But as Tally hides her true self, she starts to wonder what "normal" means after all and whether fitting in is really what matters most.
Inspired by young co-author Libby Scott's own experiences with autism, this is an honest and moving middle-school story of friends, family, and finding one's place.
