One thing I am sure of is that, when the time comes comes to have "The Talk" with my son, when he expresses an interest in knowing what makes him and me so different from other people, this will be one of the first resources to which I turn. In fact, I may approach the initial process by reading this book aloud together. This boy, Kenneth, does a wonderful job of explaining his emotions and struggles as he works very, very hard at making his life and everyone else's better.
He works hard, and he frankly shares his experiences, good and bad. He wonders if his mission in life will be to help others like himself, and if it is, he's already made good progress. I am not Christian, but I found his sense of God and the wonders of the world around him to be quite moving, and his sense of justice and ethics to be quite strong for such a young child.
I think this is a wonderful book; one which should be read by the teachers, caregivers, siblings, and most importantly, parents of AS kids. Before reading this book, my daughter would never discuss her Asperger's with me. She would talk about it with my husband, but not me. When she was 3 years old, I met with her teacher to discuss her 'quirks' and began to realize that she fit the Aspie profile. After my initial shock and grief, I realized that the labels are only as damaging as we let them be, and they can be helpful, as we found many resources for parenting a quirky kid.
We weren't alone; other parents had done this. This book helped my daughter come to that same realization. She knows she's different, but putting a name to the difference and knowing that she's not alone in the difference makes it easier to deal with. Kenneth Hall is her hero, and she wants to write a book just like he did when she reaches the ripe old age of ten. Only 4 stars because since Kenneth lives in England, many of the resources available to him are not applicable to people in the US, and it is challenging for my daughter to understand that fact.

To view it, click here. I found this book a unrealistic view of AS. This is the type of book that makes people have negative views of people with AS. With consent grammar mistakes, talking about how if something dose not go right he flips out, wanting to stay in his room all day, and not wanting to try new things.
This is OK, but he says all AS kids are like this. He even contently talks about his random things sometimes with a example, he is talking about his believes and than talks about the Titanic. I did not like t I found this book a unrealistic view of AS. I did not like this book at all. Aug 26, Iamshadow rated it really liked it Shelves: Good basic teen level book, probably good for someone recently diagnosed Asperger or for friends, family or teachers of an Asperger child.
A Christian flavour, that may be unwanted for non- or ex-Christians. Intelligence is a spectrum too. View all 12 comments.

It was written from a child's point of view therefore simple to understand. It was a quick read and very insighful. View all 4 comments. Jun 06, Anja Braun rated it it was amazing. I really can't see how any1 could give this book anything but 5 stars.. Kenneth was 10 years old when he wrote this.. It described so well how my son thinks especially when he think certain things are pointless..
This is the best book on AS because it is from a boy who actually deals with it every single day.. It took great I really can't see how any1 could give this book anything but 5 stars.. It took great courage for him to open up and write this book..
Any1 who gives it less than 5 does not have a son or daughter with AS.. Jun 10, Rachel rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Kenneth wrote this when he was eight years old. He says he wrote it himself, but he must have had a little help with editing and grammar. It was interesting to see written out how he thinks.
There were some interesting things in it. Like how he claims that all people should be fair, but he is so quick to point out how he refuses to do things because "it's stupid and pointless". Reminds me of SO many kids I worked with last summer. Feb 24, Athalia Stoneback rated it it was amazing.
This is a very charming book written by a boy with Asperger's, about his experience with the condition. It isn't just about Asperger's, though, Kenneth Hall also talks about his interests and has a very moving faith in God. Regardless, he has a positive view on Asperger's, which is helpful for anyone who's just been diagnosed, and for their loved ones.
