Rogue

Kiara has Asperger’s syndrome (an autism spectrum disorder), and it’s hard for her to make friends. So whenever her world doesn’t make sense—which is often—she relies on Mr. Internet for answers. But there are some questions he can’t answer, like why she always gets into trouble, and how do kids with Asperger’s syndrome make friends? Kiara has a difficult time with other kids. They taunt her and she fights back. Now she’s been kicked out of school. She wishes she could be like her hero Rogue – a misunderstood X-Men mutant who used to hurt anyone she touched until she learned how to control her special power. A children’s book for ages 10 and up.
