Freaks, Geeks and Asperger Syndrome - A user guide to adolescence

Freaks, Geeks and Asperger's Syndrome is my second book. It has all my life experiences, real-life scenarios, and little quirks of AS itself. It touches on subject unmentioned before now like dating tips and advice and bullying in and out of the playground. It is not just to do with Apergers Syndrome but also adolescence in itself. My book is now available and I do hope that it helps many of you.

The Dating Game

Firstly, if I even hinted that I had any expertise on the subject of dating, I would be given the title of the worlds biggest liar. Hmmm. Luke Jackson - the worlds biggest liar. Not exactly the title that I envisaged for myself!

 I have never asked anyone out in my entire life, although I have wanted to quite a few times, but in this chapter I give all the tips I know with some (a lot) of help from my sisters. Maybe by the time of publication, this may have changed, but even it that is so, I find it very hard to envisage me turning into some kind of Casanova!
