She and I aren't looking for a label, if she is an "Aspergirl" then we don't really care! However, watching her face light up and the weight lift off her shoulders as she realized there were other girls that truly are just like her and they are: Smart Articulate Successful Plentiful Now I don't worry when she states something like, "Mom!
My little pattern girl can just keep counting ceiling tiles I thought the first half of this book was very good, showing how the core elements of aspergers manifest in daily life in different ways for different women and girls. However, about halfway through it seems like the author stopped taking in as many perspectives, or something, because what she was talking about stopped being relevant to me.
I have aspergers, but I don't get temper meltdowns or have depression. She seems to say that all aspergirls have these problems, but you don't have to have those problems to be an asperrgirl. I know I'm lucky not to have those problems and that they are problems for many aspergirls, so I'm glad she included them, but she should acknowledge in some way that those problems are not universal. It was touched on many times, but there was never a discussion dedicated to it, which I think is a shame because I know that is a common problem encountered by aspergirls.
Another subject I wish it had touched on was Queer aspergirls. The romance section was entirely focused on male partners, and I wish she would have acknowledged in this chapter that some aspergirls aren't straight. One final negative point: this book relies on a lot of pseudoscience, most particularly the last chapter about gastrointestinal problems.
I would give the first half 4. I am thrilled with all I learned about myself while reading this book! This was my life story and it's wonderful to understand things I just didn't get before. Also nice knowing there are others who have been through this too. If you are just looking to understand a girl or woman with Asperger's I believe this will give it too you.
I will continue reading this and gleaming a better understanding of myself and my needs. Of course Asperger's would present itself differently in females and there are a lot more expectations placed on women as far as being social. Now I am happier with myself and know things I can change and won't be able too. Truly a must for anyone with an Aspergirl in there life or is one.
While reading this book, I kept saying over and over, that is me! Wait that happens to me too! That happens all the time! It was wonderful to recognize that others have experienced so many of the things I have found inexplicably in my life.
I enjoyed the real life tidbits from women of all ages. I found the reviews at the end of each chapter interesting, but not as helpful as I would have liked. I think this book may be targeting an audience younger than 30 years old. As a younger girl, I think the tips and suggestions would have been really helpful, but as a grown woman, I was hoping for a little more discussion on why I react in the ways that I do.
I loved it because my youngest sister has the stronger signs of an Aspie but after reading the book I noticed most of the mentioned aspects of an Aspie also applied to me.
After reading this book, the advice given, I will also advise my siblings on how to deal with certain things in life given our uniqueness of viewing the world. Plenty of knowledge to be learned regardless if it applies to you, a loved one or just someone you know. Its worth the time to learn something new. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
