He also watched documentaries and spoke with psychologists about the topic.[1] He noticed there was a number of books about autism for young adults, but very middle grade novels, so he opted to write a book for that age group. He also know a boy with Asperger's via the school of his children, whom he enlisted to check if his writing was accurate.[2]
