Synopsis

M in the Middle Secret Crushes, Mega-Colossal Anxiety and the People's Republic of Autism by The Students of Limpsfield Grange School, Vicky Martin

I'll never have a Card Emporium series of life events: a boyfriend, a fiance, a husband and a future. A future with lots of sparkly cards celebrating all these big life events. I was on course and now I'm not. Life after diagnosis isn't easy for M. Back in her wobbly world, there are lots of changes and ups and downs to get used to, not just for M, but for her friends and family too. Faced with an exciting crush, a pushy friend and an unhelpful Headteacher, how long until the beast of anxiety pounces again? Written by Vicky Martin and the students of Limpsfield Grange, a school for girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder and communication and interaction difficulties, M's story draws on the real life experiences of teens with autism.

Reviews

I really enjoyed reading M in the Middle. It was very believable and easy to identify with M. It's a great project and an important book, as well as being a fab read! -- Cathy Cassidy, bestselling author of `The Chocolate Box Girls

- and her story - and never let go. This glimpse of the world through her eyes is touching, taut and - most importantly - truthful. -- Karen McCombie, author An insightful and honest page turner with a distinctive voice and a wonderfully engaging heroine. A truly remarkable achievement by Vicky Martin and the students of Limpsfield Grange. -- Katy Birchall, author of 'The It Girl

. -- Davida Hartman, Director and Senior Educational Psychologist at The Children's Clinic, Dublin and author of 'The Growing Up Guide for Girls: What Girls on the Autism Spectrum Need to Know!

'normal', whilst being aware of her anxiety and her limits. I could relate very much to her need to know why, her need for exact timings and structure, and her confusion about why people don't say exactly what they mean. This book will help a lot of young girls feel a lot less alone. -- Alis Rowe, Entrepreneur and Founder of the Curly Hair Project'
