Growing up, Dr Camilla Pang loved patterns and ordering things. She was obsessed with Disney, infatuated by Stephen Hawking and the language she only really understood was science. Diagnosed with autism age 8, Camilla felt like an outsider – and kids often like nothing better than to gang up on outsiders.

This is the story of how Camilla used science as her sidekick for navigating the world- allowing her to translate ideas she could understand (like gravity and light waves) onto things she couldn’t (like people, how long to smile for, and when someone needed a hug).

Now she is sharing her scientific survival guide with you – so you can grow up with the courage to be yourself, no matter how different you feel or how hard you might find it to connect. Because the hard bit of growing up isn’t other people – their opinions, their friendship groups, their popularity, their exam results. No, the hard bit is you: learning who you are as a person, having confidence in your own instincts, and understanding what actually makes you happy. And the really hard part is accepting that it’s completely normal to be perfectly weird.
