Writing with a poignant honesty about her childhood in Sweden, Gunilla Gerland knew from an early age that she was different. Always feeling alone and driven by inner compulsions, she did not fit in with other children or her own family. Only after she reached adulthood was she diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. This touching account of a troubled childhood offers insights into a condition that has not been widely recognized, and serves as an invaluable resource to families and professionals striving to understand autistic people in their care.
