  2. Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's
    by John Elder Robison

    Look Me in the Eye is the moving, darkly funny story of growing up with Aspergers at a time when the diagnosis simply didn't exist. A born storyteller, Robison takes readers inside the head of a boy who teachers and other adults regarded as defective. Its a strange, sly, indelible account; sometimes alien yet always deeply human.
