Product Description

Author Jessica Peers takes you right inside what it feels like to have Asperger Syndrome... Expelled from mainstream education and vaguely aware she has something called "Asparagus" Syndrome, 12 year-old Jessica is sent away to a residential school for young people with autism.  Here, at first miserable and misunderstood, she spends the next five years trying to cope with the strict school system - fighting against misguided teacher interventions, dealing with the onset of adolescence and fitting in with the other pupils.  Recalling her school years with humor and insight, her account will open the eyes of readers to the difficulties, and the rewards, of this condition.
