An amazing book written by a child on the autism spectrum. This is a useful book for anyone who wants to appreciate an insider's perspective of autism and Aspergers syndrome. It seems that this would be a great biography to share with students on the spectrum or who are interested in their classmates who may be on the spectrum.
