Autism in heels : the untold story of a female life on the spectrum /
By O'Toole, Jennifer Cook,
"The face of autism is changing, and more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick. Autism in Heels, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism's most prominent figures, Jennifer Cook O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse self-discovery, not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman. Beyond being a memoir, Autism in Heels is a love letter to all women. It's a conversation starter. A game changer. And 3 firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos). Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism 'looks a bit different in pink,' most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. Autism in Heels takes that message to the mainstream."--Dust jacket.Introduction: Thirty-four years -- Backwards in heels : my story in reverse -- Camouflage : hiding in plain sight -- Life with the volume turned up : intense minds, intense .... everything -- Executive, functioning : girls can be professors, too -- Mythbusters : open heart emotion -- The land of anywhere but here : predators and fandom families -- The statue of Venus : friends, rules, and red high heels -- So this is love : autism by gaslight -- Hurts so good : our epidemic of self-harm -- Semicolon : the story of a sisterhood.At the age of thirty-five, O'Toole was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense.

The gilded wolves /
By Chokshi, Roshani,
Set in a darkly glamorous world The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence and dangerous but thrilling adventure. Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can't yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much. Together, they'll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.

The confession /

Katie Lapp's identity had been shattered the moment she found the satin baby dress in the attic of her parents Amish home. Painfully torn from her close-knit community in the frightening ordeal called the shunning, Katie - now Katherine Mayfield - sets out to find the ailing birth mother she has never known. Her journey takes her to the peaceful home of Lydia Miller, where electric lights and telephones sets Katherine's mind whirling with "fancy" things, and on to the elaborate Bennett estate in the Finger Lakes region of New York. There she stumbles into a world of compassion and greed, mercy and betrayal - where the plain garb of the Amish is misused to disguise an evil conspiracy. Unknown to Katherine, her first love, Daniel, is taking appropriate steps to return to his Amish family - and to her. But their worlds may have drifted too far apart to bridge ... Shunned from her home and alone in a world of strangers, Katherine Mayfield longs only for the gentle, loving embrace of the woman she hopes to call Mother.
