I LOVED this book. I gave it to my son to read too. He loved it as well. In it, Jackson reveals what it is like to be a 13 yr old boy w/Asperger Syndrome. An endearing boy, he writes as though he's talking to you directly, which makes it a fast read. I highly recommend this for parents, teachers and teens who have AS.

Written by a thirteen-year-old who has Asperger syndrome, this is a book for adolescents. Luke is acutely aware of just how different he is and how little information is available for adolescents like himself. 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 where to tell others about Asperger syndrome, school problems, dating and relationships, and mortality.… (mere)

Written by a 12-year-old with Asperger syndrome, this book offers encouragement and practical advice on what to expect when starting a gluten and casein free diet, how to alleviate any initial discomfort and how to live with the diet. Appendices by his mother provide some of the family's favourite recipes, extensive lists of useful addresses, a food diary for an average week and suggestions for packed lunches.

I would recommend this book to parents, teachers and especially Autistic kids, no matter where they are on the spectrum. Luke not only provides invaluable insight into how AS affects his life, but how Autism affects the lives of his two younger brothers. He also provides helpful, bullet point, lists on how to manage everything from sleeping, homework and even dating.

The title is quite apt, because this is truly a guide to handling many of the challenges teens with Autism face on a daily basis.

Additionally, I would recommend this book to any authors attempting to write fictional stories featuring Autistic characters. Luke breaks down a lot of stereotypes prevalent in pop culture today.

He is witty, optimistic and has a great deal insightful in to human social behavior. His sense of humor is charming and very relatable. I personally found his unique perspective on the subtly of language and contradictions in social expectations to be enlightening.

This book a fun, informative read. I really cannot recommend it enough.
