The Story Behind The Latest Book
Autism in Heels an intimate memoir,
reveals the woman inside one of autism’s most prominent figures.
At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer O'Toole
was identified as being on the autism spectrum,
and for the first time in her life, things made sense.
Now, through personal journeys and revelations,
Jennifer exposes the gendered world of autism, where girls and women struggle under constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence.
Jennifer is editing the autism script with passion, power, and "infectious enthusiasm" (Publisher's Weekly). "Candid insight" that is nothing less than "a lifesaver" (Booklist).
Jennifer's story is a love letter to all women. A life of reverse-self-discovery not only as someone with autism but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman.
The face of autism in changing.
And more often than we realize,
that face is wearing lipstick.
I am blown away.
Jennifer O’Toole is a master whose engaging style and wit make even the hard moments absolute page turners.
Never has a book captured the female perspective with so much accuracy, grit, and flair.
