$16.99

Availability: Available to Order from Supplier: Arrives at Store in a Week(ish)
Published: Quill Tree Books - October 19th, 2021

I just want to give Gwendolyn a hug -- or share a weighted blanket with her. Carter captures so much about being neuroatypical -- the longing for an official term to define yourself, the constant trying to get things right, and how important it is to have people who get you even when they don't understand everything going on in your head.
