Just as the beginning of June is in mutable Gemini season my reading was just as variable and divided into multiple genres and interests!
One of the hallmarks of the month for me was receiving an official diagnosis of Autism and ADHD. It's probably no surprise then that I decided to reward myself with even deeper research into the subject.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is or suspects they are Autistic, or who loves an Autistic person. It called me out, explained so much of my life experience, and gave me informed research and tools into the culture and how I can make life better for the community and for my personal situation.
Yep. There's even a workbook. And this book will be on my shelf.
This is a fine story. It reminds me of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which I also thought needed a little more heart--ironcially. The characters are developed, it handles representation well enough, and the plot it woven so that everything has a purpose. That being said, it just didn't hit the spot for me. I found myself skimming even though the word choice was clever and precise. I think other readers might love this story, even if it doesn't end up on my own shelf.
