Mini Review: Colored – The Unsung Life of Claudette Colvin

Hi everyone!

It’s been so long since I’ve read and reviewed a book, so as always I used some graphic novels to get me out of my reading slump!
First of all I’d like to thank NetGalley and the publishers for the digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A few months before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, kicking off the U.S. civil rights movement, making headlines around the world and becoming an enduring symbol of the fight for dignity and equality, another young black woman refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was the wrong person at the right time, and so History did not choose her. Her name was Claudette Colvin and this is her story.

Review: Camouflage – The Hidden Lives Of Autistic Women by Sarah Bargiela

Hi everyone!
I just finished this great book about autistic women and autism. I’d like to thank NetGalley and the publishers for the digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

 

42415482Camouflage by Sarah Bargiela
  • Illustrator: Sophie Standing
  • Genre: Non-fiction, Graphic Novels
  • Pages: 48
  • My rating:  out of 5!
  • Plot: Autism in women and girls is still not widely understood. It is often misrepresented or even overlooked. This graphic novel offers an engaging and accessible insight into the lives and minds of women with autism, using real-life case studies. The charming illustrations lead readers on a visual journey of how women on the spectrum experience everyday life, from metaphors and masking behaviours to communication online, dealing with social pressures and managing relationships. Fun, sensitive and informative, this is a fantastic resource for anyone who wishes to understand how gender affects autism, and how to create safer, more accommodating environments for women on the spectrum.

REVIEW

I was looking for some cool graphic novels on NetGalley when this gorgeous cover caught my eye! This book is about autism and autistic women. I’ve always been very curious about how the human brain works. I had already read some articles about autism and the fact that usually autistic women camouflage better.

This novel analyzes in depth what it means to have autism and the differences between autistic men and women. It covers some issues in the tests for women. It also features 4 autobiographies about their lives and diagnosis. I loved hearing about their experience with the diagnosis. In fact sometimes autism can be confused with anxiety, depression.
