Jennifer Rose is autistic. She's also a college student who loves reading, writes fan fiction, and wants to be on TV someday. She sees the world a little differently than most people around her. She's had trouble coping with school, has struggled with bullies and mean girls, but she has also achieved much in the face of adversity. And through it all, with the help of her parents, Jennifer's learned a few lessons:

#5: Use your dreams to make a difference.
#8: You won't be perfect at everything, not even the things you do best.
#18: Learn to take jokes, even your dad's.
#26: Down times will be bouncing up soon . . .
#27: . . . meanwhile, enjoy what you have.
#47: Talk about your feelings, even when it's hard.

It's Not a Perfect World, but I'll Take It is an uplifting guide to life. It explains how you can be different and still connect with others, how to deal with tough realities, and how to celebrate happy times. Told with irresistible honesty and humor, Jennifer's fifty bite-sized stories will have teens and adults nodding in recognition and gaining new insights about themselves.
