    I really struggled with this book. I wanted to love it, and I believe that it's a vital conversation about women on the spectrum and how to improve practices around diagnosing/supporting women on the spectrum. However, the writing was choppy and repetitive; many chapters felt like adap...

    WOW! Just WOW! I first heard Jennifer speak in January of this year. She mentioned that she had a new book coming out this summer. At that point, I knew that I had to get my hands on it. Later on I discovered that the digital ARC was available on Edelweiss?YIPPEE! (Being a lib...

    Autism in Heels is a true story about Jennifer O'Toole. Jennifer shares her story about what it's like to live with Asperger's, which is on the Autism spectrum. This is a great story that advocates for people who live with a disability and shows that they are just like everyone else. T...

    DNF at 50% Okay, so I hate that I'm the very first review for this book and am giving it a bad rating. But I just didn't care for it. Doesn't mean others won't! The beginning felt more like reading an academic article or study than a story about her life with autism. It's not to...

    Insight into the dynamics of life "on the spectrum" is helpful to me, since my granddaughter has been diagnosed with autism. She received this diagnosis at 2, but this was after repeated efforts to determine what was going on with her. One doctor, discovering her severe social anxiety,...

    This book was so honest and well-informed! I was a little nervous going in, I admit, because (a) I feel like the only point of heels is to utilise them as a weapon, and (b) I've read so many autism-books and been burnt a lot by negative assumptions and problematic viewpoints. But this ...

    This is an amazing book. An extraordinary look into autism in women told with fascinating anecdotes from a captivating writer. I have always enjoyed the Asperkids books but Jennifer O'Toole has really outdone herself describing this personal journey. I was riveted from the first moment...

    (I received a free eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.) I actually had to take a break in the middle of reading this because it struck home ? not just close, but all the way. As in, I recognized very specific thoughts and behaviors that I?ve noticed but never c...

    I really struggled with this book. I wanted to love it, and I believe that it's a vital conversation about women on the spectrum and how to improve practices around diagnosing/supporting women on the spectrum. However, the writing was choppy and repetitive; many chapters felt like adap...

    WOW! Just WOW! I first heard Jennifer speak in January of this year. She mentioned that she had a new book coming out this summer. At that point, I knew that I had to get my hands on it. Later on I discovered that the digital ARC was available on Edelweiss?YIPPEE! (Being a lib...

    Insight into the dynamics of life "on the spectrum" is helpful to me, since my granddaughter has been diagnosed with autism. She received this diagnosis at 2, but this was after repeated efforts to determine what was going on with her. One doctor, discovering her severe social anxiety,...

    This book sheds light on the often unrecognized differences in the world experiences of women and girls on the spectrum through one woman?s journey. O?Toole?s narrative weaves together her life in self-reflective stories along with the research and study information that helps ex...

    Jennifer O'Toole's latest book is a brilliant and personal reflection of life on the autism spectrum for women and girls. Her voice cannot be denied! I wholeheartedly recommend this book to clinicians, parents, identifiers, and explorers of autism. Reading it will increase your knowled...

    Autism in Heels is a true story about Jennifer O'Toole. Jennifer shares her story about what it's like to live with Asperger's, which is on the Autism spectrum. This is a great story that advocates for people who live with a disability and shows that they are just like everyone else. T...

    DNF at 50% Okay, so I hate that I'm the very first review for this book and am giving it a bad rating. But I just didn't care for it. Doesn't mean others won't! The beginning felt more like reading an academic article or study than a story about her life with autism. It's not to...
