Brad Meltzer is a master of taking the challenges of real world heroes and translating it for children to understand. This book, about one of the most famous autistics in the world, it PERFECT for introducing children to some of the traits. I still stand by that adults could also learn a lot from the book series. It reviews a broad introduction to her life, while really focusing on the difficulty of her childhood and desire to find her place in the world. As the parent of a child with autism, this one is one of my favorites of Brad's. Should be in every elementary school and home library. The artwork of Christopher Eliopoulos is stellar once more as well.
