"The author is autistic, and she is a leading name in the community with a significant media profile (she was the first British autistic woman to address the United Nations on autistic females' rights, and has received an MBE for her work in this area). Carly works directly with families and multidisciplinary teams to support autistic girls who are at risk of dropping out of education. The content of the book will be based on this experience, and address the face that many young/teenage (diagnosed/pre-diagnosis) autistic girls are either in trouble or absent from school, and are ping-ponging between mental health units, CAMHS, home, detention - often vulnerable to men, gangs, depression, self-harm, etc."--
