Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Akea: His Mother’s Son, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.
Today I have a guest post from the author, Elizabeth Jade…
Autism Awareness, Acceptance and Me
I started school in 2002, and by the time I was 7, the kids were bullying me; the teachers said I needed to pay more attention; and I would go home and relate what everyone had been doing in detail, but hadn’t a clue what the lessons were about. I waited a term and a half for the teaching assistant I was told I needed, but never received it. By this stage, the stress from being at school was making me physically unwell and my parents decided to keep me at home.
The Cat That Changed America is based on a true story, with an imaginative retelling for children, and illustrated by Louise Goves.
The book is scheduled for publication on October 22nd (P22 day in California) by Sabana Publishing and can be pre-ordered from Amazon UK and Amazon US
The book is a heart warming, captivating and entertaining story of the life of a juvenile mountain lion, which also has an underlying conservation message for young readers. P22 has a huge fan club, not only in the States, but internationally, as conservationists try to raise money to build a wildlife crossing over the 101.
