Description - Kids Like Us by Hilary Reyl

A heartwarming and original story about acceptance, falling in love for the first time and learning that the line between reality and imagination does not have to be fixed.

Kids Like Us is the delightful, heartwarming story of Martin, a teenager on the autism spectrum, who falls for Gilberte-Alice, a 'normal' French girl. While spending summer in the French countryside with his mother, Martin mistakes Gilberte for a character in a novel he is obsessed with - Marcel Proust's masterpiece In Search of Lost Time. He gradually realises she is not Gilberte, the fantasy girl, but a real person named Alice. Falling in love, in all its unpredictability, teaches Martin that he can connect to people.

Kids LIke Us is also the ultimate book about acceptance. Perhaps we are all in our own bubble; perhaps the line between reality and imagination does not have to be fixed. A book for those who loved The Curious Incident of the Dog at the Nighttime, and Counting by 7's by Holly Goldberg Sloan.
