With diary entries written by eleven-year-old Libby Scott,
based on her own experiences of autism, this pioneering book, written
in collaboration with esteemed author Rebecca Westcott, has
been widely praised for its realistic portrayal of autism.

Tally is eleven years old and she's just like her
friends. Well, sometimes she is. If she tries really
hard to be. Because there's something that makes Tally not
the same as her friends. Something she can't cover up, no matter
how hard she tries: Tally is autistic.
Tally's autism means there are things that bother her even
though she wishes they didn't. It means that some people
misunderstand, her and feel frustrated by her.
People think that because Tally's autistic, she doesn't
realise what they're thinking, but Tally sees and hears - and notices
- all of it. And, honestly? That's not the easiest
thing to live with.
Perfect for fans of Wonder and The Goldfish Boy,
this sucker punch to the heart is valuable reading for children
and adults alike.

Endearing, insightful and warmly uplifting, Can You See
Me? is a story of autism, empathy and kindness that will touch
readers of all ages.
