My Strange and Terrible Malady
Written by Catherine Bristow, My Strange and Terrible Malady takes the reader into the mind of a teenage girl with Asperger's syndrome. Main character Ronita Baker narrates her experiences at school and home with humor and wit, as well as her interactions with her family, life coach, and best friend Hannah. Meredith Coates, a Youth and Family Ministries coordinator and parent of a teenager with Asperger's, calls the book a "must-read not only for teens with AS and those who care for and love them but for all teenagers who cope with trying to fit in and find themselves."
