The cover is eight-year-old Dylan Dunnes artwork. Loved and saved for twenty-eight years by the author, it seemingly was meant for the cover of this book featuring son Dylan. The drawing is profound in its prescience and lyrical in its execution. Like a juvenile self-portrait, the depiction personifies the child who, no wonder, would grow up saying, Wait, What Do You Mean? It is this moms Aspie Boy. This tell-and-show story is about a family losing one son and finding another. It is about anxiety, confusion, depression, information, identification, acceptance, and appreciation: a classic theme of darkness and light. But the story is about much more than one family. It is about three generations of living as an adult with Aspergers Syndrome. Commentary from those who now recognize their presence in Aspiedom, writing on WrongPlanet.net, other Internet forums, and on personal blogs, is included here. In the Aspies Speak chapter, they unfold their experiences for you as you turn the pages.

Part of the Reading Well scheme. 35 books selected by young people and health professionals to provide 13 to 18 year olds with high-quality support, information and advice about common mental health issues and related conditions. Winner of the NASEN & TES Special Educational Needs Children's Book Award 2003 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 has three sisters and one brother in various stages of their adolescent and teenage years but he 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 how to tell others about AS, school problems, dating and relationships, and morality. Luke writes briefly about his younger autistic and AD/HD brothers, providing amusing insights into the antics of his younger years and advice for parents, carers and teachers of younger AS children. However, his main reason for writing was because "so many books are written about us, but none are written directly to adolescents with Asperger Syndrome. I thought I would write one in the hope that we could all learn together".
