I'm looking for book recommendations of books that have autistic characters, reading level of young adult and up. Not ones where you could argue that the character is autistic, but where the character is definitely written to be autistic.
I finished reading the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and I really enjoyed it. I felt I could really identify with how the character thinks and acts at time. I also think it helped me learn a bit more about how others experience autism. I would love to read more like it.
There are books on amazon that has characters who are autistic and the book is told from their point of view. Not everyone on the spectrum is the same. This book addresses common social issues in a simplified manner. The characters are animated however do not let that distract you from the valuable information that is relevant to individuals in grade school through adulthood. The sample book is free to read on the website. In Google’s search engine type https://www.catinasway.com/what-autistic-people-really-think-feel or https://www.catinasway.com. When you get to the site, click on what autistic people really thing and feel to read about Sally FOR FREE! The book is in a slide show format. I’m sure it will not disappoint. Hopefully this is helpful to you.
