Clueless Clarence: 5th April 2007
by Zoe Hunter and Leslie Roberts
Meet Clarence and his family. Clueless Clarence is a book of the innermost thoughts of a 15 going on 16 year old boy with mild Autism. From a day by day diary written over the course of 2008 to a selection of his poems. This is a quirky fun and imaginative book that joins fact and fiction. Any parent with an autistic child will recognise the anxieties and the preoccupations and any teenager with a diagnosis will recognise that they are not the only one.
