George is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a type of Autism. He has been going to a boy's boarding school since he was seven. The other boys bully him, and he can't control his emotions properly.

One day he meets the strange and mysterious Sam, the only boy he's really ever known who doesn't tease him or try to make him angry. So what will happen when George starts to fall for this wonderful and distant boy?


1. Foreword

Hi, I’m George, and I’ve been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, which is a type of Autism. I get along ok but I don’t eat lunch with the other boys, because I have a support program to help with my speech and reactions to others. It would also be too noisy for me.

                Anyway, this is my story of how I met Sam. We decided the best way to tell it was to split it up; we’ll tell different parts of the story and ask other people to write down how they saw it. In other words, it’s a split narrative. We were learning about them on the first day of this book. I’ll hand over to Sam now, for the rest of the foreword. (The bit at the start from the author – or authors – before the book begins.)


I’m quite confusing. That’s what other people say, or, at least, they used to say that; until I met George. My reputation isn’t the best – okay, it’s terrible – or, at least, it used to be; until I met George. People don’t like me, I think I make them feel threatened, or, at least, they used to; until I met George.

                Well, I think you get the picture. I was a horrible, devil-child, until George came along and changed my life. I know that sounds cheesy but it’s true. I’m not like other people who fall in love and say their life was changed forever. I really believe I have something, something different, with George. He is literally my life. He accepts me, I accept him, it works.

                Oh yeah, by the way, I’m Sam. Just Sam.
