Designed to help teens play the game of life with instructions.
Being a teen or tween is tough for anyone. And if you’re on the Autism Spectrum, life can feel like a game you’re playing without knowing the rules. Jennifer Cook knows – she’s been there! Her internationally bestselling handbook is the key to unlocking those unwritten, often confusing, not-so-obvious social guidelines and bolstering confidence, all at once.
The 272 page book includes funny illustrations, easy to digest explanations and comic strip examples that are designed to support teenagers to understand the baffling social rules related to making and keeping friends, conversations, dating, using social media. It’s not easy!
This Book of the Year award winner is real, positive, and speaks from the heart (without ever sounding like your mother’s guide to manners). It’s confidence, humor, and smarts. For the Human Spectrum.
