I purchased this book because there was some suspicion that a close female relative might have Aspergers but most of the information out there seems to focus on boys and their symptoms. It turns out that girls can have Aspergers too, and the way they present to the world is different enough from how boys look that they often go undiagnosed, and therefore, unaided in dealing with a challenging neurological condition. This book is incredibly helpful in understanding how it feels to be an "Aspergirl" and what caregivers can do to help Aspergirls reach their full potential. It is very readable book and chock full of quotes from girls and women with Aspergers that illustrate the points the author is making. So far the best book I have found on Aspergers and girls and a real lifesaver for those looking for answers!
