Jennifer Rose is autistic. She's also a college student who loves reading, writes fan fiction, and wants to be on TV someday. She sees the world a little differently than most people around her. She's had trouble coping with school and she's struggled with bullies, mean girls, and her own feelings of bitterness and inferiority. Through it all, with the help of her parents, she's learned a few lessons: #5: There are many ways to make a difference. #20: You won't be perfect at everything, not even the things you do best. #22: Down times will be bouncing up soon . . . #23: . . . but meanwhile, try to enjoy what you have. #44: Talk about your feelings, even when it's hard. #45: Learn to take jokes, even your dad's. It's Not a Perfect World but I'll Take It is an uplifting ode to being different. Told with irresistible honesty and humor, Rose's fifty bite-sized stories will have teens and adults nodding in recognition and discovering new things about themselves.
