Debi Brown's extremely important book provides a frank and honest discussion that will certainly help Aspie females recognize and avoid unsafe relationships with men. But should disaster strike, it will also help the woman with ASD figure out a plan of recovery for good physical and mental well-being --Liane Holliday Willey, EdD, author of Safety Skills for Asperger Women: How to Save a Perfectly Good Female Life; Pretending to be Normal: Living with Aspergers Syndrome; Asperger Syndrome in Adolescence: Living with the Ups, the Downs and Things in Betwe
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. Debi's thoroughness, frankness and clarity make it an important book for a lot of girls and women, not just those who are Aspies. --National Autistinc Society
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. Debi's thoroughness, frankness and clarity make it an important book for a lot of girls and women, not just those who are Aspies. (NAS)
As an Aspie herself, Debi Brown has written warmly, startlingly honestly and from a position of knowledge... She has understood the fundamental truth, that to ensure a girl's safety, it is vital to educate her... Debi doesn't use innuendo or assume knowledge on the part of the reader... She lays it bare, and when it all gets too difficult (some of the subject matter is deeply challenging), she envelops you warmly with reassurances and kind words. You feel as though you are sitting having a heart-to-heart chat with your best friend. This beautifully written book should be essential reading for all young women, not just Aspies. (from the foreword by Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex: A Forthright Guide to Puberty, Sex and Relationships for People with Asperger's Syndrome)
Many female Aspies will identify with the sense of uncertainty and vulnerability surrounding sexuality and relationships, which Debi Brown conveys with great sensitivity and honesty. Like a reassuring friend, she guides readers through a carefully structured series of 'rules' about social support, intimate relationships and safety. Written with tremendous warmth, this book gives indispensable advice for females with Asperger syndrome, as well as being enlightening for parents, like me. I particularly enjoyed the personal experiences and insights Debi shared. (Kate E Reynolds, counsellor, autism mother and author of Party Planning for Children and Teens on the Autism Spectrum and Sexuality and Severe Autism (forthcoming))

A lot of the book focuses on choosing confidantes, the right to say no, identifying body parts and recognising inappropriate physical behaviour and abuse, so it may well be useful for young girls and teenagers on the spectrum, but for me in my thirties I found nothing to be gained here. What I wanted to learn sadly wasn't there.
But there is lots and lots of very good material of value to any girl or young adult woman. Its coverage of what's ok and what's not is - with the exception of its blanket rejection of non-monogamy - excellent, including lists of things you can say when you are not happy with what's happening or are not sure about whether or not to do something.
