As a mother of a middle-school-aged daughter with autism spectrum disorder, I find Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About a MUST read. While reading this book, I felt as though Haley's story could have been my own daughter's. I love how the author walks us through her middle school years step-by-step and shares her experiences.
