Picture book "The Girl Who Didn't Know How To Be" by Lex Kartanė

So... what is this book about? Picture book “The Girl Who Didn't Know How To Be” is an allegory of an autistic person, but at the same time perfectly portrays anyone who feels different and struggles to fit in. Living in a world where there is so little understanding of neurodiversity, I find it crucially important to talk about these topics from a different perspective. In recent years awareness of autism has grown, at the same time there is a growing belief that autistic people must conform to society's expectations and perfectly fit into its conventional imaginary pattern created to control society. Autistic people are not the problem, society that wants to make everyone behave the same way is the real problem.
