Funny, You Don't Look Autistic is stand-up comic Michael McCreary's memoir in which he points out that autism "looks" different for just about everyone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Diagnosed with ASD at age five, McCreary got hit with the performance bug not much later. During a difficult time in junior high, he started journalling, eventually turning his pain into something empowering - and funny. This unique and hilarious memoir breaks down what it's like to live with autism for readers on and off the spectrum. Funny, You Don't Look Autistic is an invaluable and compelling read for young readers with ASD looking for voices to relate to, as well as for readers hoping to broaden their understanding of ASD.
