    1. Just excellent! Very well done. I am an autistic nearly-30 year old, and have never read a fictional book with an autistic girl protagonist, and it was so RIGHT. I could relate to M so much, especially her school experiences (I was mainstream educated, and it was horrible). I can relate to her feelings of 'rightness' having met other autistics finally, and her inner experiences were so familiar that I was baffled by it. Thank you for this book. One thing I was not keen on was 'person-first' lang [...]

    2. I received this book from a giveaway.Having worked for the past 20+ years with lots of young people who are autistic I was looking forward to reading this and wasn't disappointed. M 's story is well written insightful, honest and refreshing to read. I have all ready recommended this for others to read and should be used in schools as required reading for pupils (and teachers)

    3. I absolutely adored M is for Autism, so I was thrilled to see that they had written a sequel! Our female main character and narrator is now in year 8 in England (so age 12 or 13). She got her autism diagnosis a year ago, and her wonderful therapist has been helping her understand herself and develop strategies for dealing with her often-crippling anxiety.I do want to caution those of you who struggle(d) with anxiety. The authors do an incredible job of provoking empathy for their anxious narrato [...]

    4. It's so hard to find stories about girls with autism, let alone stories so vividly real and relatable as M's. This is the book that had me crying in public.

    5. This is the book I wish I had read a few years ago, following my own diagnosis, or as a younger teenager. Written by autistic teenage girls with the help of their teacher, it shows a unique and empathetic insight into the lives of autistic people navigating the real world in a way non-autistic people would have a hard time understanding.

    6. I won this book in a Giveaway and am so in love with it!!! The way the author changed the fonts to place emphasis on the autistic girl's thought patterns was fantastic, the storyline was so sad, but believable and full of hope. This is one of those books that will remain on my shelf for a future reading.Literally finished the entire book in less that 24 hours because it was just that good.Highly recommend this book to anybody looking for an interesting read!

    7. M is back! M is the main character of M is for Autism, the first book by Limpsfield Grange School’s students & Vicky Martin.M has her diagnosis of autism, but still no one seems to understand her. Not her mother, her fiercest defender. Not her father, who has moved out and sometimes sleeps on the sofa. Certainly not her brother who seems embarrassed by her. And definitely not her school, who don’t seem to believe that she even has autism.But when M gets her first crush on the wonderful L [...]

    8. Just wow! This is a fantastic book. Drawing on the real lives of girls with autism this follows the story of M a teenage girl and her life being autistic. The account is raw and leaves you feeling sad and wanting to give M a big hug- although she wouldn't like that. The story doesn't hold back on the schools lack of support for a pupil with autism. A must read book for all those with an interest in autism, a parent, a teacher, healthcare professional or other teens with autism. Finished the book [...]

    9. 4.5 stars.This is really good! It gives a unique and yet accurate/believable insight into high functioning autism. I'm mummy to a 7 year old boy with high functioning autism and we as a family had to 'fight' to get him a diagnosis so I could relate to both the mother in this story and the girl with the autism. It was interesting to read about an older child and also a girl because I'm led to believe that it tends to be harder to get a diagnosis for girls and that autism may present differently i [...]
