Level: Middle Years (6-9)
Mia tries her best to be herself –which can be pretty hard, trying to fit into a world that doesn’t quite see her true autistic self. But she gets through school armed with her headphones, listening to music to tune out her classmates’ bullying. While she wishes she could just speak up, she has an outlet at home – singing and writing songs with her best friend Charlie.
