Frík, nördar og aspergersheilkenni
Þegar Luke Jackson var þrettán ára vantaði hann vegvísi fyrir snilling af því tagi sem aðrir kalla stundum frík eða nörd.

Í Frík, nördar og aspergersheilkenni talar Luke til annarra krakka sem greindir hafa verið á einhverfurófinu en einnig foreldra þeirra, kennara og fagfólks.
