Growing up knowing you are different, constantly misunderstood and considered “difficult” can be a challenging experience. However, Eliza Fricker, a bestselling author and illustrator, approaches this topic with humor, wit, and tenderness.

Eliza’s childhood filled with labels such as “spoilt,” “weirdo,” “fussy,” “hypochondriac,” and “chatterbox.” It wasn’t until she received an autism diagnosis as an adult that she finally understood why she had experienced the world so differently.

There are a lot of Eliza’s memories of growing up that I personally connect with, including thumbsucking. She delves into how neurodiversity presents itself in everyday life and what neurodivergent children truly need from their loved ones.
