About the Author
Rebecca Burgess is the author of the forthcoming middle-grade graphic novel Speak Up.
"A touching look at one girl's struggle with autism and bullying, and a charming testament to finding the inner strength to speak up in one's own voice." -- Tyler Page, creator of Button Pusher
"A loving depiction of one young person's experience of autism...The full-color art is cute and expressive...A fun, sweet story about being oneself."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"Intimate and inlaid with nuance, an empowering look at self-acceptance, accommodation, and masking via the lens of one autistic experience." -- Publishers Weekly
"In this accessible graphic novel, Mia's increasing eagerness to be--and to advocate for--herself is encouraging, as is the casual diversity among other characters. The digital illustrations hold interest, especially at moments of strong emotion--and when Mia feels free as Elle-Q." -- Horn Book Magazine
"The artwork really pops, with expressive illustrations that spill over the panels and colors that brighten the page. A heartwarming and fun graphic novel, recommended where realistic fiction is popular." -- School Library Journal
