Being a tween, teen, or 20-something isn’t easy for anyone — but it’s especially tough for Aspies. Jennifer O’Toole knows. She was one, taught a whole bunch, and is raising three! That’s also why she knows that Asperkids deserve their very own guide to all of the hidden social rules that are awfully confusing to us, even if they seem obvious to everyone else. This isn’t your momma’s Emily Post, and there is no “don’t do this” finger-wagging or patronizing “high and mighty preaching” here. Instead, the “Secret” Book gives Aspies of ALL ages respectful, funny insights written “for us by one of us.” Chock full of illustrations, logic, and even a practice session or six (in comic strip style, thank you very much!), this is the handbook every adult Aspie wishes we’d had growing up, but never did.
