Temple Grandin, Tony Attwood and others provide advice on friendship, bullying, education, puberty, transition and dating - all for girls on the autism spectrum. A very readable guide for girls or their parents.

Amazon user review: It's high time a book about girls with Asperger's joined the growing plethora of autism/Asperger's (a/A) literature. This is an excellent book that discusses a previously overlooked population, girls on the spectrum. "Women From Another Planet: Our Lives in the Universe of Autism" is the ideal companion book to this one as it is a compilation of essays by and about women who are on the spectrum.

After learning that I was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome in December 2007, this book has given me a lot to think about. With help from my mom, teacher, and friends and family, I'm able to learn more about my syndrome and how to overcome it. This book has helped out a lot after my mom had rented it from the library.
