This small but helpful book intended for teens is a combination of story (about a high schooler named Duncan who has Asperger's) and factual information. Cute story, and the information was good if a bit basic. Would be good for a teen with aspergers, or soeone who knows a teen with aspergers to read. Some of the information was helpful to me (an adult with aspergers), and the story was tollerable if geared (like the book) toward teens.

a strange combination of non fiction and narrative. The information was helpful, and the story, while a little trite, was interesting. it was a good introduction. i think I'll lean towards something a little more scientific if I want to know more, but really, i can't ask for better when the book is an impulse grab at the bookmobile.
