In this joyfully illustrated memoir, author-illustrator Abigail Balfe recounts her journey growing up autistic and the challenges of navigating the "normal" world around her.

Hi! My name is Abigail, and I'm autistic. But I didn't know I was autistic until I was (kind of) an adult. This is my true story of growing up in the confusing "normal" world, all the while missing some Very Important Information about myself. 
 
There'll be scary moments involving toilets and crowded trains, heartwarming tales of cats and pianos, and funny memories including my dad and a mysterious tub of ice cream. Along the way, you'll also find some Very Crucial Information about autism.
 
Important, funny, and completely unique, this book is for anyone who has ever felt different.
Abigail Balfe is a Brighton-based writer, illustrator, and creative producer.

Abigail also used to perform stand-up comedy and won several tiny trophies for her onstage humor, which involved life-size illustrations, ridiculous songs, and rambling stories about her family.
