With diary entries written by eleven-year-old Libby Scott, based on her own experiences of autism, this pioneering book, written in collaboration with esteemed author Rebecca Westcott, has been widely praised for its realistic portrayal of autism. Tally is eleven years old and shes just like her friends. Well, sometimes she is. If she tries really hard to be. Because theres something that makes Tally not the same as her friends. Something she cant cover up, no matter how hard she tries: Tally is autistic. Tallys autism means there are things that bother her even though she wishes they didnt. It means that some people misunderstand, her and feel frustrated by her. People think that because Tallys autistic, she doesnt realise what theyre thinking, but Tally sees and hears – and notices – all of it. And, honestly? Thats not the easiest thing to live with. Perfect for fans of Wonder and The Goldfish Boy, this sucker punch to the heart is valuable reading for children and adults alike. Endearing, insightful and warmly uplifting, Can You See Me? is a story of autism, empathy and kindness that will touch readers of all ages.
