From the Librarian, Heidi Bezaire:

Pretending to be Normal: Living with Asperger's Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Expanded Edition has been added to our resource collection!  Liane Holliday-Willey’s compelling and witty account of growing to adulthood as an undiagnosed ‘Aspie’ has been read by thousands of people on and off the autism spectrum since it was first published in 1999. Bringing her story up to date, including her diagnosis as an adult and reflecting on the changes in attitude over 15 years, this expanded edition continues to entertain and inform all those who would like to know a little more about how it feels to spend your life `pretending to be normal’.

From Liane’s website http://www.aspie.com:

Liane holds a Doctorate of Education with a specialty in psycholinguistics and learning style differences. Liane likes to share her experiences of living with Asperger's syndrome with audiences worldwide, bringing positive insight along with the real and not so happy memories she has gathered over the years during her stints as a university professor, writer, manure scooper, french fry maker, community volunteer, wife and mother. Whether she is talking to large groups, leading a small group seminar, writing a book or blog, or serving on a special education board, Liane's goal is to help others understand the importance of accepting differences and individuality.
