Freaks, Geeks, and Asperger’s Syndrome: A User’s Guide to Adolescence
Author(s): Luke Jackson
Have you ever been called a freak or a geek? Have you ever felt like one? Luke Jackson is 13 years old and has Asperger’s Syndrome. Adolescence and the teenage years are a minefield of emotions, transitions, and decisions. When a child has Asperger’s Syndrome, the result is often explosive. Luke is acutely aware of just how different he is and how little information is available for adolescents like him. Drawing from his own experiences and gaining information from his teenage brother and sisters, he wrote this enlightening, honest, and witty book in an attempt to address difficult topics such as bullying, friendships, when and how to tell others about AS, school problems, dating, relationships, and morality.
