Haley Moss is a teenager with autism, but that did not stop her from writing "Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About." Moss, who had not shared her high-functioning autism with her classmates, decided to talk about it when her talent as an artist made her more visible. She decided she could be a spokesperson for people with autism; she could inform the community about what it’s like to live on the spectrum. It wasn’t always easy for Haley, she did not speak until she was four and attended speech therapy and hippotherapy to increase her social and communication skills. Her book talks about middle school difficulties as a teen with autism, but also can help other teenagers who might be shy and don’t feel like they fit in.
