An ARC from the publisher tells the tale of Annika, a high-functioning autistic, and Jonathan, a man who has changed colleges in his senior because of a cheating infraction. It is a love story. See www.pedometergeek.wordpress.com for a more complete review.
Annika is a beautiful young woman, who has some quirks and habits that make her a target for bullies. Frankly, she always feels a bit different, never knowing the proper thing to do or say. Once at college at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, she is taken under her roommate Janice's wing and gets involved in the Illini Chess Club and the Wildlife Center (working as a volunteer with animals), and spends her days in the library.
With Janice’s help, she learns to navigate the world outside her bedroom (that is, learn to mimic how most people dress, act, or converse—think Sheldon Cooper).
Through chess, she meets Jonathan, and they develop a relationship, but will Annika’s quirks destroy a budding relationship? Or will they end up together?
A lovely story with characters that are people you'd want to be friends with, quirks and all.
