No so much women but rather girls

Not too much information for women, it mostly focuses on helping girls up to adulthood. That informations is very good. But there's not much practical information for women

Agree this book is damaging for Aspie teens

I agree that this book is potentially damaging to teen Aspie girls. It insists that Aspie girls stuff themselves into a stereotypical box, to sacrifice their true selves for nothing more than subordinate friendships to girls I wouldn't allow my dog to play with, much less a teen girl. We tell kids to "be themselves" but then in this book totally contradict that by telling them to be somebody else, somebody who fits in with a sick high-school culture that values only conformity, shallowness, money, "fashion" and rigidly stereotyped gender roles.

I'm a newly diagnosed adult Aspie, I was hoping this book would provide useful information, instead I'm sickened. I won't be recommending it.

Very insightful! Cleared up a lot of confusion!

There was so much valuable information information I'm this book! I appreciate the author sharing as clearly as she did.
