Tally’s autism means there are things that bother her even though she wishes they didn’t. It means that some people misunderstand, her and feel frustrated by 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.
