Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic by Michael McCreary

Reviewed by Jayne S (Library Staff)

I logged onto the Libby app and this title popped up. My grandson was diagnosed as possibly autistic, the experts are not sure yet. When my sons were little, kids were put on Ritalin for hyperactivity – needed or not. ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) is the new catch all diagnosis in my opinion.

The author is only 22 years old and already wrote his memoir! He illustrated his struggles and accomplishments growing up. His younger brother also is autistic but nonverbal as well. Michael refers to his parents briefly – I would like to hear their side, perhaps another book is forthcoming.

This book is categorized for young adults, but I also found it dispelled some of my misconceptions too. It was an informative read, I recommend it.
