A great book Another book
bought for my bookshelf to allow them to see into another world It extremely important these MG books are available for kids to read and gain an understanding about people that may be around them and how they maymay not thinkfeelact differently and that s ok My short take on this bookThis book is a combination of present tense third person prose and short diary entries from the perspective of Tally the autistic main character The diary entries mainly focus on charting her anxiety evels and explaining terms and concepts related to autism often breaking them down into pros and cons I didn t care for the narrative writing style because it was often detached and dry and #WHEN PARTS OF THE BOOK WENT #parts of the book went and on without advancing the plot or characters significantly I sometimes skimmed ahead to the next engaging action I Chimes of a Lost Cathedral The Revolution of Marina M love slice ofife stories but parts of this were too ordinary and detailed for my tastes because they didn t tie into the plot or emotional current of the story or else fulfilled the exact same purpose as a dozen other scenesStill despite its stylistic flaws this book has an encouraging message and provides what appears to be an extremely realistic representation of autism even though I cannot speak from personal knowledge of it This book should be very encouraging and helpful to kids who relate to Tally s situations at home and at school and it is a great tool to help build understanding and empathy among family members friends and classmates of children with autismMy personal emotional essayI read an ebook copy of this through my المهاجرون الليبيون بالأيالة التونسية 1861-1881 library and I m glad that I did During my current phase of uarantine I have been reliving the highlights from when I was twelve and thirteen watching some of the movies that I watched back then and rereading related journal entries It s been fun because even though that is theast time in my Burials in Hawaii life I would ever want to experience again I ve gotten to enjoy my memories of the good parts while better reconciling myself to the awful aspectsWhen I was twelve I viewed myself with rage andoathing but القوة الهادئةغير طريقة تفكيرك يتغير العالم من حولك looking back I understand the things that I was going through andove myself in retrospect not because I have forgotten about how atrociously awful I was at times but because I see that I had dignity and value anyway In so many of my thoughts and activities ately I have been mentally messaging back to my younger self I see you I remember you You are a good kid you matter and you are going to be okayThus reading a book entitled Can You See Me about a struggling kid at a similar age was very timely This story follows the experiences of a fictional eleven year old girl named Tally who is on the autism spectrum and who is struggling to adjust to school Her experiences are drawn from the ife of this book s young coauthor and these contributions give a very realistic flavor to the story both in terms of the autism experience and the thoughts and feelings of a child beginning middle schoolI am not autistic and I had the very great blessing of being homeschooled which I appreciated even after reading this book However I deeply identify with Tally s high sensitivity to stimulation and agitation over it her obsessive compulsive tendencies some of her tics and her constant stress over trying to find some way to appear at Simplifying Innovation least semi normal or ateast normal enough to fly under the radar This was also my first time reading a novel that reflected some of my behavioral issues from the past Although Tally s are extreme than mine were or at east seem to make ess rational sense her feelings of grinding anxiety rage and explosion are painfully familiar to meThe book s descriptions of her feelings and her explanations for things that don t make sense to other people are near perfect I can relate so much to feeling that constant sense of rage and explosion and being so frustrated with people who thought that I was choosing my bad behavior wanted to be miserable all the time and enjoyed making This Strange Wilderness life aiving hell for me and everyone else in my family Tally clearly explains to the reader the state that she gets in showing that she is not acting out for selfish reasons but is suffering tremendously and cannot contain herselfI had never ever read descriptions The Red Balloon like this before that I didn t write myself It meant so much to me to read about this from another person s perspective and to see Tally s stress about trying to behave and keep self control but getting to points where sheiterally cannot restrain the explosive behavior that takes over It was so accurate and even though Tally s triggers were different than mine I cannot even imagine what an overwhelming comfort it would have been if I could have read something Red Mars like this when I was twelveHowever on the negative side it bothered me that her mother was so dismissive of Tally s explosions seeing them as something that the family had to endure Again I m not autistic and I know that my experience is different but the message of this is just who Tally is as A coming of age story aboutearning to celebrate yourself and teaching the world to recognize you too perfect for fans of R J Palacio's WonderThis glimpse into the world of a young autistic girl is astonishingly insightful and honest Tally's struggles to 'fit in' are heart wrenching and her victories are glorious

Ccepting as it seems can be a cop out from finding solutions to someone s misery In my experience discovering food and chemical sensitivities and changing my exposures changed my ife and I would hate for parents or children who are dealing with behavior issues Small Crimes like mine to read this and think that it s a static unchanging issue that can t be mitigated or resolvedI can relate to Tally s commitment to accepting herself and to being who she is She doesn t want to not be autistic because it s part of what makes her Tally and I completely connect with that from my own different experiences However this attitude can alsoead to the risk of accepting acute suffering as part of a packaged deal I will never be a normal person and my brain will always be different from the average but I am no Vasculitis: Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired longer afflicted with such horrible behavioral and mental issues that I wish I could die I did not have to keep suffering in all the same ways in order to remain my neuroatypical self and still be meI can only speak from my own experience and I am not making any commentary about autism itself but I think there is a risk to reading a bookike this and assuming that just because someone presents with a certain emotional physical or mental symptom means that it is part of their identity Tally talks about how offensive it is when people talk about wanting to cure autism and I completely understand why autism itself is part of her identity but some of her behavioral psychic and sensitivity issues could at Les lixirs floraux de Viviane faire soi-mme least hypothetically be eased Based on myife experience I have a hard time with the message that someone has to accept everything about their condition as inevitable and unchangingSo on the one hand I wish that I could have read this when I was twelve It would have been deeply reassuring Yet on the other hand I m glad that I didn t read it then if the message to take away from it is that you have to accept everything about yourself and that your most excruciating suffering is part of your identity and can t change After all that was my deepest fear I was terrified that I would never be able to go back to being the happy comparatively normal child that I had once been and feared that I was going to stay trapped in an internal volcanic explosion until I died I am forever grateful that my parents didn t give up and accept my situation the way it was and put unimaginable amounts of effort into helping my Panic Party life changeI am glad that I read this book It made me feel seen and it contributed to my reflections about whatife was ike for me at twelve years old and how profoundly grateful I am that things are completely different now Still I have mixed feelings about
