I wanted to wrap my arms around M - and her story - and never let go. This glimpse of the world through her eyes is touching, taut and - most importantly - truthful. -- Karen McCombie, author
An insightful and honest page turner with a distinctive voice and a wonderfully engaging heroine. A truly remarkable achievement by Vicky Martin and the students of Limpsfield Grange. -- Katy Birchall, author of 'The It Girl' series
M in the Middle provides one of the best insights that I have ever read into the world not only of teenage girls but of all people on the spectrum, and does so while still being entertaining, well written, funny and moving. Beyond its obvious readership, it should be required reading for all neurotypical teenagers with the purpose of developing empathy for the struggles their peers on the spectrum face, particularly in mainstream education. I will be recommending it to everyone, everywhere. -- Davida Hartman, Director and Senior Educational Psychologist at The Children's Clinic, Dublin and author of 'The Growing Up Guide for Girls: What Girls on the Autism Spectrum Need to Know!'
Really nice to hear more about M. She has a brilliant way of describing autism, in particular the sensory experiences and the desire to belong and be 'normal', whilst being aware of her anxiety and her limits. I could relate very much to her need to know why, her need for exact timings and structure, and her confusion about why people don't say exactly what they mean. This book will help a lot of young girls feel a lot less alone. -- Alis Rowe, Entrepreneur and Founder of the Curly Hair Project
