Rated Outstanding by the American Association of School Libraries





This is the first book to be written by autistic college students about the challenges they face. Aquamarine Blue 5 details the struggle of these highly sensitive students and shows that there are gifts specific to autistic students that enrich the university system, scholarship, and the world as a whole.



Dawn Prince-Hughes presents an array of writings by students who have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome or High-Functioning Autism, showing their unique ways of looking at and solving problems. In their own words, they portray how their divergent thinking skills could be put to great use if they were given an opportunity. Many such students never get the chance because the same sensitivity that gives them these insights makes the flicker of fluorescent lights and the sound of chalk on the board unbearable. For simple -- and easily remedied -- reasons, we lose these students, who are as gifted as they are challenged.



Aquamarine Blue 5 is a showcase of the strength and resilient character of individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. It will be an invaluable resource for those touched by this syndrome, their friends and families, and school administrators.
