2006, I was an 18 year old boy with learning difficulties and was ashamed of it to the point of trying to hide it and denying that I had them.
Then my mum gave 'You're different and that's super' for Christmas. At the time I had no idea why she gave her grown son a childrens book, so I read it and by the time I finished it I was flooding with tears..........because it really hit home with my everyday life and since then I grew to be not ashamed of my condition, here I am now writing about it for the world to see.
In the years since then I have been starting to become a bit of a writer myself and I now actually see my condition as a gift as it has positively influenced my writing.
Anyway, the point is that this book was a major milestone for me and I HIGHLY recommend to any person, or anybody who knows a person who feels isolated from the world they live in because of who and what they are, be it their disability, sexuality, ethnicity or religion. Because I hope it could have the same positive effect it had on me.
