Description of this Electronic Book

A humorous, sensitive and surprising view of our world through the eyes of Marty, a boy with autism who decides it's high time to join in. Marty Morgan is considered a loser; weird, different, the little kid who really thought he was going to be murdered when it was his turn to go to the 'murder house'. Definitely B-crowd material ... or, truth be told, D-crowd. Because although he attends a mainstream school, he's not mainstream: he has low-level autism. Puzzled by others' emotions, words and facial expressions, he has blended into the background, but now he decides it's time to take control of his destiny. It's time for him to 'man up', as his father would say. So when Luke Costigan, his one true friend - who is physically 'disabled' - wants to take part in the Young Enterprise Scheme, in spite of his misgivings, and past experience of Luke's grand plans, Marty (or M&M) to his friends, says YES. And that is just the beginning ... Ages: 12+
