Poe's voice is confident, moving and often funny, as they reveal to us a very personal account of autism, mental illness, gender and sexual identity. Charlotte witnesses their own behaviour with a wry humour as they sympathises with those who care for them, yet all the while challenging the neurotypical narratives of autism as something to be 'fixed'. Punctuated by their poetry, this is an exuberant, inspiring, life-changing insight into autism from a viewpoint almost entirely missing from public discussion.
