Luke Hemmings, seventeen years old, diagnosed with a form of very rare autism, known as Childhood Disintegrative Disorder. But just because his disorder has the word childhood in it, doesn't mean it goes away with age, Luke will have this disorder forever. Sure medication can help, but it will always be obvious that something is wrong with him. He doesn't have any friends, but he isn't bullied either, just no one wants to be friends with the autistic boy. Luke also has an extemely high IQ of 156, so he is considered gifted and talented.

But when a new boy named Ashton comes to his school, and is seated next to him in art class, Ashton finds he has a strange liking for this boy that never talks, never looks up, and draws slower than everyone else.

I know a few people with down syndrome and I love them, they always brighten up my day. People who are autistic are some of my favorite people because they are so sweet and caring, even if they aren't doing so great.

This reminds me of my twin. He had an iq of 145 but he got bullied very badly for being a 'nerd' and different so he overdosed two years ago. 😞

My little brother has autism which makes it very hard for him to talk or learn but he has an amazing memory.  One time he drew a keyboard and put all of the letters on the right keys without looking at one.
