When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew she was different. Years later she was diagnosed with autism. Temple’s doctor recommended institutionalizing her, but her mother believed in her and Temple went to school instead.

Today, Dr. Temple Grandin, a scientist, and professor of animal science at Colorado State University, is an autism advocate and her world-changing career revolutionized the livestock industry.

This compelling biography and Temple's personal photos take us inside her extraordinary mind and open the door to a broader understanding of autism.

 

"A well written, admiring and thought-provoking portrait."--Kirkus

"Montgomery's book not only tells the powerful story of one amazing woman's life journey, but also has potential to help readers understand autistic people and animals."--Horn Book

"It isn't easy to describe how the mind of someone with autism works, but Montgomery's biography effectively breaks the disorder down for a younger audience while introducing the extraordinary life of activist Temple Grandin."--Booklist

"Lively, well-worded narrative...For librarians who struggle to find well-written biographies of women, this is a must-buy."--School Library Journal, starred review
