Haley Moss, in her own words, has created a very helpful guide for girls on the spectrum - and, indeed, any girl who experiences challenges in 'fitting in.' Her book is practical and insightful. Drawing on her own experiences, Haley provides a wonderful template for social success. --Brenda Smith Myles, PhD, consultant, author, and national and international speaker

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. This book will help our daughters with ASD not feel so intimidated by the transition into middle school. Haley Moss created an extraordinary gift for which girls with ASD will be forever grateful! --Danielle Wendel, mother of a teen daughter with ASD and author of Girls Under the Umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Every child entering middle school should read this book! Haley has done an amazing job explaining the ins and outs of the everyday challenges that today's middle school students face. She offers detailed advice on a variety of topics, such as preparing for the first day of school, changing classes, lockers, friendships and handling stress. She covers it all, from today's slang to organization and time management. I applaud Haley for sharing her experiences and writing such an extraordinary book that is sure to be a useful tool for countless middle school students. --Tara C. Tuchel, M.S., CCC-SLP, author of My Best Friend Will
