Delightfully Different by D. S. Walker is just that, a delightful look into a world that is somewhat different from what most people know as typical. As it is described on the author’s website:

"Delightfully Different shares a poignant glimpse into the life and mind of a girl with Asperger’s Syndrome who demonstrates through her compelling experiences that every life has a purpose and that being unique is what makes each of us special."

Although this novel is listed on Amaz

I like the fact that this story is not just about a girl with asperger's who has challenges. It actually has a plot, and resolution. Most books I have read with character's that have autism gives a whole biography about the lives of the character's, but do not provide a plot. They just touch upon a characters personal experiences during their lives that they had to overcome. This story was not a long biography. It's a story that explores Mia Lung's childhood experiences, and how she and her mot ...more

I thought this book did a great job of helping the reader/audience understand what it is like to live with Aspergers. Mia went many years dealing with sensory issue while she nor her family had any idea that was what was wrong with her. When her family started working towards helping her with this stuff, her life changed dramatically. This would be a good book for fourth or fifth grade to read.

I found this book to be both a quick light read and a nice glimpse into Asperger's. Having a daughter diagnosed with Asperger's the story hits close to home. I too find myself reflecting on her behaviors and seeing the small clues that have been sprinkled throughout her childhood. I love the frank clear language D.S. uses which makes this book ideal for adolescent readers.
When I read about Mia and Alisa being bullied by Morgan and her comrades I was so heartbroken and angry. No child shoul

"Every time I hear of a child ending their life after others are cruel to them, my heart cries. My child experienced bullying a few years ago. At the time the books for middle school girls were all about being mean to be popular and other mothers were okay with their daughters being mean. This inspired me to write Delightfully Different to teach kindness and respect of differences. I truly believe ...more
