I just received this book and couldn't put it down. What a wonderful teen novel! The main character is Ronita Baker, a teen who just received her diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome. Hannah, the new girl in class meets her and slowly becomes a wonderful mentor and friend. A life coach also helps Ronita navigate through the tricky social world...one comment she makes is 'you have to know the rules before you make the rules.' This book is a wonderful and entertaining tool for educating peers about Asperger Syndrome and opening their hearts and minds to those who might hear a different drummer. Also, it's a great book for those on the autism spectrum to have a character with whom they can identify. Author, Catherine Bristow, helps us understand a unique perspective of the teen with Asperger Syndrome and shows us how one can grow by adapting to their environment and also having their environment adapt to them. I highly recommend this to teachers of middle school and high school as well as for families of individuals with Asperger Syndrome. It's a fun story, with a good message and a variety of characters. Kudos to Catherine! Joanna Keating-Velasco, Author - A Is for Autism F Is for Friend: A Kid's Book for Making Friends with a Child Who Has Autism
