Tally is eleven years oldand she's justlike her friends. Well, sometimesshe is. If she tries really hardto be. Because there's something that makes Tally notthe same as her friends. Something she can't cover up, no matter howhard she tries: Tally is autistic.
Tally's autism means there are things that botherher even though she wishesthey didn't. It means that some people misunderstand,her and feel frustratedby her.
People think that because Tally's autistic, she doesn'trealise what they're thinking, but Tally sees and hears - and notices- all of it. And, honestly? That's not the easiest thing to live with.
