"This book grew out of a belief that what is most gripping about history is the
fact that it is a story of human beings in conflict," say authors Maxine Rosaler
and Phillip Marguiles. The coauthors of several books for young adults on
subjects ranging from science to history, law, and warfare, Maxine Rosaler and Phillip Marguiles live in New York City.
Gr. 6-9. This book from the Coping series introduces Asperger syndrome, a neurological disorder related to autism, taking a look at symptoms, treatments, and the increasing awareness and changing views surrounding it. Two interesting chapters deal with the needs of children with Asperger syndrome and how they are met (or not) in schools. Although the book occasionally seems to address adults, it is one of the first overviews to present what is known in a manner that is accessible to younger readers. Appendixes include a glossary, bibliographies, source notes, and lists of organizations in the U.S and Canada that readers can contact for help. Carolyn Phelan
