About the Book

Sencer is a 12 year old boy with functional autism, or, Asperger’s. People don’t always understand him. He struggles to make friends with his peers. He doesn’t get their jokes or their sarcasm. But after his teacher sets a summer assignment, everything changes. Sencer embarks on an international journey with his family…only to find himself in trouble. Along the way, what he discovers changes him, and his community, forever.
