I am an introvert. Always have been. I was always the quietest, the shyest, the most sensitive as a child. I know there's power in being an observant type of person, an introvert, but sometimes it seems like the world doesn't see it that way.

This book sees it that way.
-Introverts are quiet and observant and empathetic.
-Introverts are intelligent and creative
-Introverted children are often made to feel wrong, like they're not doing what they should be doing in school (yep)
-I learned a lot through this book about what levels of stimulation I can take, borne out by real life

71.0% "Reading a chapter on introverted children in particular and how they navigate school and I am sobbing because holy crap, school was literally the worst and most tormenting thing to my very introverted self."
