About the book:

Expelled from mainstream education and vaguely aware she has something called "Asparagus" Syndrome, 12-year-old Jessica is sent away to a residential school for young people with autism. Here, miserable and misunderstood, she spends the next five years trying to cope with the strict school system - fighting against misguided teacher interventions, dealing with the onset of adolescence and fitting in with the other pupils. Recalled with humour and insight, Jessica's story is one of hope and an account that challenges professionals to develop a more enlightened approach to working with children on the autism spectrum.
