Being a teen is hard enough. But when you have autism--or
when your brother or sister is struggling with the
condition--life can be challenging. It's one thing when
you're a kid in grade school, and a play date goes south due
to autism in a family. Or when you're a little kid, and a
vacation or holiday turns less-than-happy because of an
autistic family member.
But being a teen with autism can get pretty
hairy--especially when you're up against dating, parties,
sports, body changes, school, and other kids who just don't
"get" you. In this powerful book, teenagers Ryan Elizabeth
Peete and her twin brother, Rodney, who has autism, share
their experiences of what it means to be a teen living with
autism. Same But Different explores the funny, painful, and
unexpected aspects of teen autism, while daring to address
issues nobody talks about.
Same But Different underscores tolerance, love, and the
understanding that everybody's unique drumbeat is worth
