Neglected by his parents from the moment he was diagnosed with autism at age three, Milo McCance survives his first eleven years in a world of isolation and rejection. Math and science are all that make sense to him.
When his history-professor father takes a tentative interest in him, Milo unknowingly initiates a path to his own destruction. All hell breaks loose. Milo must find his way through the ensuing chaos and looming threat.
The second half of the story time-warps eight years in the future to the year 2020. Milo is now age twenty. A group of teachers in Milo’s former high school are determined to eliminate the growing population of autistic students enrolled in the school. Through a series of events, Milo is asked to team up with the school’s Director to thwart the group’s Machiavellian efforts to erase any influence autism has on the school’s culture. As Milo comprehends the parameters of the group’s threat to the students, he finds himself caught between past terrors and future annihilation.
Milo, Autistic Warrior is a novel about family, relationships, autism, repressed rage and the courage required to find identity in the midst of fear and destructiveness.
