Publisher's Summary

Jeannie grew up with autism, but no one around her knew it. Twirling Naked in the Streets will take you on a journey into the mind of a child on the autism spectrum; a child who grows into an adolescent, an adult, and becomes a wife, mother, student, and writer with autism.

This is a gripping memoir of a quirky, weird, but gifted child who grows up never quite finding her niche. It took 38 years to discover that all the issues, problems, and weirdness she experienced were because she had Asperger's Syndrome (AS), a form of high-functioning autism. The tale begins at age three and takes us all the way through her diagnosis. Along the way she explains autism in a way that will have fellow "Aspies" crying tears of joy at being understood, and "neuro-typical" people really starting to grasp the challenges that autistic people face every moment of every day.

    "So familiar"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Twirling Naked in the Streets and No One Noticed to be better than the print version?

    I only have the audio edition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When I first started listening I swore that my own 6 year old traveled into the future, wrote this book and came back to publish the story of her life! Soon after listening to the entire book, my daughter was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.
    This story takes you right into the world of autism from an insider look.

    Story
    "The first book I ever read on this subject"
    Where does Twirling Naked in the Streets and No One Noticed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was really impressed. It is great being a female on the spectrum and reading this! I related so much and I'm very happy this was my first choice for when it comes to books on autism. I couldn't believe how specific everything was and how much of it just added up. I have amnesia from trauma so it brought back a lot of memories and has helped me get through all this. Thank you for writing this Jeannie if you're reading this. <3


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twirling Naked in the Streets and No One Noticed?

    I remembered her relationship with her family the most because I've been healing from living with an alcoholic father and neglectful mother who always tried to change me into something I wasn't.


    What does Alicia A. Diaz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I feel like I was able to take everything in a lot better, I struggle with reading because I constantly have to read it over and over. I felt a lot more engaged and less distracted listening to her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not sure how to answer this question.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE WRITE MORE BOOKS!
