A fragmented story of feelings
The story through memoirs and poetry, of an autistic child who became an autistic adult in a world not built for her. She was different, and not in the way anyone in the little village could understand. She was the sunshine everyone tried to cover up, the gemstone who was too rough to be loved. The girl nobody wanted near. Except him. The first person to take her in, the first person to abuse and use her, and one of the hundred people guilty of making her condition worse.
This is the story of one autistic child who became an autistic teenager, and then finally an autistic adult. It’s a dark story as well as a story of hope. A story of anger and grief as well as love and compassion.
This is a collection of memoirs and poetry by Tricia Johansson.
This is an independent version of the book "Stories of a Whimsical Girl", the difference is that this book contains memoirs and poetry only, while "Stories of a Whimsical Girl" also includes more philosophy and self-help as a big part.
