Jennifer Rose is autistic. She’s also a college student who loves to read, writes fan fiction, and wants to be on TV someday. Sure, she sees the world a little differently than most people around her, but many of the problems she’s faced will sound familiar to the teenager in all of us: trouble coping with school, dealing with bullies and mean girls, and struggling with her own feelings of bitterness and inferiority. Through it all, with the help of her parents, she’s learned a few lessons. Outlined in It’s Not a Perfect World, but I’ll Take It: 50 Life Lessons for Teens Like Me Who Are Kind of (You Know) Autistic (Skyhorse Publishing, May 2016), Jennifer’s wisdom covers a wide breadth of topics, including:
#5: There are many ways to make a difference.
#20: You won’t be perfect at everything, not even the things you do best.
#22: Down times will be bouncing up soon . . .
#23: . . . but meanwhile, try to enjoy what you have.
#44: Talk about your feelings, even when it’s hard.
#45: Learn to take jokes, even your dad’s.
It's Not a Perfect World, but I’ll Take It is an uplifting ode to being different. Told with irresistible honesty and humor, Jennifer’s fifty bite-sized stories will have teens and adults nodding in recognition and discovering new things about themselves.
