    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 Syndrome. Over the years Luke has learned to laugh at such names but there are other aspects of life which are more difficult. Adolescence and the teenage years are a minefield of emotions, transitions and decisions and when a child has Asperger Syndrome, the result is often explosive. Luke writes briefly about his younger autistic and AD/HD brothers, providing amusing insights into the antics of his ... Show more

What a charmer!

by Carmen S on Jul 7, 2011

Luke's personality and wit shine in this enlightening take on living with autism and Asperger Syndrome. I am training to become a special education teacher, and I found this book to be both herat-warming and eye-opening. I recommend it to anyone who has been diagnosed or has family or friends diagnosed with autism.

An Autistic Teen's Own Story

by waucondacarol on Jun 29, 2007

The title of this book intrigued me as it aptly described my grandson. The book is written by a British teen who has Asperger Syndrome, a form of autism. He is also a self-described computer and computer-game expert, thus a "geek". I bought the book for my grandson, but read it through myself and found it a handy, down-to-earth guide of living with asperger through one's teen years. The young man who wrote this book was matter-of-fact about his disorder and how he coped with school, family, friends, and girls he wished to impress through the perils of obssessive behavior, a childhood of strange behaviors, and his daily control of actions that would be very strange to "normal" teens. He wrote with humor and great understanding. Even though the teen lived in England, his experiences certainly are comparable to teens in America. A wonderful book for not only the teen with Asperger, but anyone who knows such an individual - parent, sibling, friend, teacher, or relative. I really enjoyed this book.
