About the Author

Chris Bonnello is a writer and speaker, formerly a primary school teacher, based in Nottingham. Having been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome as an adult, he launched Autistic Not Weird (https://autisticnotweird.com) in 2015 to share his personal and professional insights whilst campaigning for greater understanding of autism. Since then he has won multiple awards for his work, published a non-fiction book, and spoken as far away as Sydney Opera House. To this day Bonnello maintains a link to teaching, working as a tutor for autistic students with special educational needs. Underdogs is his first novel, following his master's degree in Creative Writing. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible story that offers representation for neurodiversity
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 May 2019
An incredible story that offers representation for neurodiversity in a positive light that shows the characters strengths and personalities well, but also discusses weaknesses, issues related to their conditions and how they are affected by day to day life as well as previous experiences. With the media often portraying special needs in a negative light, and more often than not, in incorrect ways, this book is a refreshing read. Written by an autistic man who was a Primary School teacher and currently teaches SEN children so he is able to offer both professional and personal insight to the characters and their development. The book was praised and endorsed by the Director of The National Autistic Society, Steve Silberman (Author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity) and Michael Grant (Author of the extremely popular Gone series).
Underdogs is a story that will give plenty of excitement, twists and a fair share of edge of seat moments. It's impossible to put the book down once you start it and you'll find yourself falling in love with some or all of the characters and you'll want to keep reading, and you will want more books to follow (which are coming....).
What I love the most about the book is that there is no shying away from the difficulties and issues that can come with conditions such as Autism, ADHD and PDA but the author makes sure you also see the characters deal with these issues as well as playing to their strengths and proving to everyone just what they are capable of in a world that often decides your problems, issues and disabilities for you because of assumptions and lack of knowledge or understanding.
I've lost count of how many times I've read this book (I was a backer on Unbound so I've had my copy already) and I love it. I'm incredibly attached to lots of the characters and can't wait to see where the story takes them in the next book. I have this in both Kindle and paperback version.
Thank you to Chris Bonnello for writing this, the world needs more books like this!
