Review: Camouflage: The Hidden lives of Autistic Women by Sarah Bargiela and Sophie Standing


Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Released: February 21st 2019
Received: NetGalley
Rating: 4 kitties

I received a copy of Camouflage through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The full title of this graphic novel should give you a pretty strong idea of what it covers. It’s all about autistic women, their differences from the typical expectations of autism, and how that results in them blending in better (and thus being less likely to be identified and/or diagnosed).

There were a lot of things I didn’t know about autism in women that I learned while reading this. It was incredibly informative, while still being very approachable.

I like that they chose to talk about the subject in a visual way, as it made everything feel more casual and comfortable to talk about. It felt less like I was reading a textbook and more like I was reading about real people (which was actually the case).

I found this to be a very informative, and enlightening graphic novel. It was nice to take a break from reading fiction and instead learn something true and important.
