Being a teen or tween isn't easy for anyone but it can be especially tough for Asperkids. Jennifer O'Toole knows; she was one! This book is a top secret guide to all of the hidden social rules in life that often seem strange and confusing to young people with Asperger syndrome.

The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules offers witty and wise insights into baffling social codes such as making and keeping friends, blending in versus standing out from the crowd, and common conversation pitfalls. Chock full of illustrations, logical explanations, and comic strip practice sessions, this is the handbook that every adult Aspie wishes they'd had growing up.

Ideal for all 10-17 year olds with Asperger syndrome, this book provides inside information on over thirty social rules in bite-sized chunks that older children will enjoy, understand, and most importantly use daily to navigate the mysterious world around them.

Brilliant and so very necessary. I wish I had had this when I was still in school. It answers so many questions I could never quite frame but knew where there, hovering like smoke between me and all those baffling people around me. I am long past teen and tween, but intend to use the insights from this book. I was diagnosed on the spectrum in my 50's. I recommend it to everyone on the autism spectrum and those who want to understand and help them.
