Along Came Spider is the story of two boys in the 5th grade who have known each other since they were born. Spider (Robert is his given name) accepts Trey for just they way he is; Trey is different and the rest of the 5th grade gives him a hard time. This is a story of endearing friendship, loyalty, and acceptance. Although the author never states Trey's true disability, the descriptions make the reader think that he is autistic.
This would be an excellent book for use as a read-aloud to help students discuss differences in people and acceptance of those differences. It would definitely have a spot on the student's bookshelves for them to read independantly.
