Review: Fourteen-year-old Nathaniel has finished college, is taking a break before grad school, loves formulas, has a photographic memory, and plays in a rock band. Social situations are difficult, however; Nathaniel has Aspberger's. Although his mother is wonderfully supportive, his father insists that Nathaniel could be "normal." Forcing Nathaniel to go to a party turns out disastrous. His terrible experience leaves Nathaniel on the verge of institutionalism, but supportive friends and his terrific mother help him through. This warm first-person narrative provides a funny, touching glimpse inside the mind of an "aspie."
