    A compelling insight into a life which could have been quite ordinary but through a sequence of events ends up being lived through a series of legal constraints. We live through Emma's experiences with her as she loses control of her own destiny, but with full realisation of what's going on. It's her self-awareness, but in some cases the lack of understanding of the cause of her problems which makes the book so compelling. As someone with little experience of Autism spectrum / Aspergers, and no experience from a female perspective, I found this account very interesting. The intense need for communication and connection with those she admires is perhaps a trait specific to females with autism- I don't know- but it's something that all of us experience at some point, and perhaps we've all been just a step away from that extra email or phone call that would tip the balance. Our society places very high expectations on our communication skills. It's very easy to get it wrong for all of... More > us, but harder to get right with AS. I was left with the feeling 'that could so easily have been me.'< Less
