Books with Characters on the Autism Spectrum
Whether you have someone in your family or school who's on the spectrum or are just looking for a compelling read, these books deliver. Some focus on kids who are dealing with the challenges of having an autistic sibling. In others, a young person on the spectrum drives the action, fighting desperados in the Wild West, solving a mystery in London, or trying to win a basketball game in fifth grade. These novels not only tell riveting stories but also can help build empathy and understanding. And for similar books, try our list of Books That Teach Empathy.
