Josie and Damian have successfully navigated many of the challenges of AS, while celebrating its innumerable gifts.

It's a wonderfully user-friendly compendium of 'everything you always wanted to know about ...' for teenagers with AS. Exceptionally well organized (dictionary style) and comprehensive, the book covers topics such as acne, stress, swearing, and hygiene in a clear and straightforward manner.
