Waterstones Says

The acclaimed author of Explaining Humans incorporates scientific ideas and concepts in an eye-opening and essential guide to understanding human emotions in her first book for younger readers.

Find your feet. Discover your quirks. Grow up perfectly weird, perfectly you.

Did you know that...

* Finding your confidence is a lot like programming a computer?
* Understanding photosynthesis can teach you about following your passions?
* Peer pressure and Isaac Newton have more in common than you might think?

Well, welcome to Dr Camilla Pang's scientific survival guide to growing up!

As a child Camilla loved patterns and putting things in order. She was obsessed with Stephen Hawking. And the only language she really understood was science. Diagnosed with autism age 8, Camilla saw the world very differently.

But with science as her sidekick, she was able to translate ideas she could understand (like gravity, photosynthesis and algorithms) onto things she couldn't (like peer pressure, emotions and finding your voice).

Today, Camilla is a scientist and an award-winning author, and she is here to share her scientific survival guide with you - so you can grow up with the courage to be yourself, no matter how different you feel or how tricky you might find it to connect. Because the hard part of growing up isn't dealing with other people (their opinions, their popularity or their exam results). No, the hard part is you: learning who you are and what makes you tick. And the really hard part is accepting that it's completely normal to be perfectly weird. In fact, it's essential to growing up happy.
