Author Jael McHenry, though, does an excellent job* in sketching out a life with Asperger's in The Kitchen Daughter, a book I recently reviewed for Kirkus.
Ginny Selvaggio believes that "normal" means nothing, and everything.
And she keeps a Normal Book to prove it. Twenty-something Ginny has Asperger's syndrome, a type of autism sometimes presenting itself as a quirky, difficult personality. Ginny doesn't like crowds, doesn't like to be touched and rarely looks anyone in the eye. And she sometimes hides in a closet when stressed. Now Ginny's protective parents are dead, succumbing to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning while on vacation.

*For writing by a person with Asperger's read the work of Temple Grandin.
