Title: Aquamarine Blue 5
Author: Prince-Hughes, Dawn
Published: 2002
Summary:
The first book to be written by college students with autism who have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, or High Functioning Autism, Aquamarine Blue 5 demonstrates their unique way of looking at and solving problems and the challenges they face. These readable essays detail the struggles of a highly sensitive group and show that there are gifts specific to students with autism that enrich the university system, scholarship, and the world as a whole. Containing the stories of a dozen students with autism, the book deals with everything from learning to eat in dormitory dining halls to making friends to exploring sexuality.
