❝Being different isn't a bad thing, it just means you're brave enough to be yourself.❞ 

Ashton Irwin isn't like most people. He doesn't dress with skinny jeans and band t-shirts while talking about video games and going with the flow. He doesn't go to parties and get drunk or smoke or inject illegal things. He's a routine-loving, socially deprived teen, who is known to be the most awkward person in his school. 

 But what makes him this way?

You see, regions of Ashton's brain are rewired differently from other people resulting in a disorder known as Asperger's, which is better known as Autism. 

Although some people that know him well think he's interesting and lovable; like his brother Harry, others see him as either a freak or just plain weird. All they see is that he's different, and different is never accepted anymore. 

Well, that was until Luke came along.

Luke saw Ashton as different, 

And Luke thinks different is beautiful.

Just so you know Aspergers isn't also known as Autism, It's a type of Autism, people who have it don't refer to it as having Autism because there are many types of Autism not just Aspergers :)

I've read a fictional book about someone with autism and his sister. It's called "rules" by Cynthia Lord. It's SO good! I've read it about four times now

My brother has Asperger's. Some people thinks he's different but I think he's just like everyone else and I love him very much.
