By Scott, LibbyBy Westcott, Rebecca
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! Things Tally is dreading about sixth grade: -- Not being in classes with her friends anymore -- The new too-tight uniforms -- ...Hiding her autism from her classmates Tally isn't ashamed of being autistic -- it's part of who she is. But the only person at Kingswood Academy who knows she has autism is her best friend, Layla. And while Tally knows it makes a lot of other people uncomfortable, 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.Read more
