Ways to Be Me by Libby Scott and Rebecca Westcott, reviewed by Evie

This book is spreading the word on Autism. It is in one word ; Amazing !

It is definitely a page turner because as the reader you want to know what happens next in the life of Tally Olivia Adams. The book is set at school as well as home , but also includes Tallys trips to the doctor. 

Tally is just starting Year 6 – ( so am I ! ) and when she comes to school after the summer holidays everyone seems to have changed…. this confuses Tally;  and as the story progresses she learns more about herself and the reasons she acts the way she does. Tally would like to fit in at school but finds it difficult.

There are some twists that surprised me I won’t give them away….but you will learn if you read this book that Autism comes in different shapes and sizes.

The good thing about this book is that even though there are no pictures I can imagine the appearance of Tally and her best friend Layla. The descriptive writing helps the reader to see through the writers eyes.

Anyone around the age of 9-12 will hopefully enjoy this book as much as I did.
