Paula has the power to show you a new and wondrous world. She is autistic and non-verbal yet so articulate she can make you laugh out-loud and then cry your eyes out. If Paulas Journal does not grab your heart within just a few pages, you have no soul. The short daily journal entries give you a unique insight into Paulas world and a better understanding of autism and what it is like to walk beside you in life and yet separated. This is not a book about autism. It is about how an autistic woman sees her life, her family, her surroundings, her faith, and the goodness and cruelty of others. It is not written by a professional, parent, or observer. It is a book written by a woman with autism showing you her world from the inside out. Author, Stephanie Marks, writes from experience. She is autistic and non-verbal. She shares her life experience with you in a fictional biography. Details maybe fictional but Paulas thoughts and feelings are the authors. Paula takes you into the world of autism, panic attacks, no spoken words, and discrimination. Paula also takes you into places where you recognize as your own and know you have felt the same way she does. She is a poet. Her words will take you places you have never been before. No one can read this book and not be changed.
