About the Author:

C.G. Meloy grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska and currently resides in Casper, Wyoming. Diagnosed with High Functioning Autism as an adult, he provides revealing explanations about the experience of living on the Autism Spectrum. He does informal Q&A sessions with Occupational Therapy students and Autism conferences.

From Booklist:

In this must-read resource for those who live or work with individuals on the autism spectrum, Meloy reflects on growing up and living with such a condition. Neurotypicals, or NTs, will find what he writes both powerful and painful as they consider ways that they react to aspies. Yet, readers also gain insight into how aspies evaluate NTs. As an elementary-age child, Meloy wasn’t totally isolated socially, although he knew he was different. Middle school, however, hit him hard. As an adult, with his family’s support, he has been successful in getting a job, learning to drive a car, and living independently. Realizing his limitations, particularly in multitasking and stress management, he knows the kind of work situation that fits, and because he has learned to live frugally, he knows when he needs to quit a job and regroup. Pullen’s expressive pencil drawings enhance Meloy’s insights into life for both NTs and those on the spectrum. Grades 9-12. --J. B. Petty
