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.
