"It's not always easy to stand out from the crowd, especially if you're a teenager. There's a lot of information out there on how to deal with bullying, but a lot of it is contradictory or seems like it won't work... But this guidebook is different! Helping you sort fact from fiction, the book looks at the different forms bullying can take and debunks commonly held myths such as 'bullying makes you stronger' and 'ignore it and it will stop'. You'll learn techniques to clear your mind so that you can respond to bullying situations calmly and confidently and be positive about who you are. Finally, it's packed with self-empowering strategies for coping with being autistic in a neurotypical world, and practical tips so you can handle any bullying scenario"-- Provided by publisher. "Review
I loved Emily's book. Sharp, clever, funny and not patronising or sentimental at all. As an autistic teen who has been bullied, I gained greater understanding of the mindset and actions of those who bully. I also gained greater understanding of myself, and some great coping mechanisms too. This is a super child-friendly book and would recommend to everyone who need safe strategies, reassurance and support. -- Dara McAnulty 16-year-old autistic author and naturalist."
