Description - Haze by Kathy Hoopmann
Acclaimed author of the Asperger Adventures series for children Kathy Hoopmann has turned her hand to a novel for teenagers. Much more than just a book about a boy with Asperger Syndrome, this is her best book yet. Weaving the facts of Seb's Asperger Syndrome into the story, this fast-paced book will be a rivetting read for teenagers of all sorts and abilities. Seb is a loner. Brilliant with numbers and facts, but hopeless with people. Bored at school - he prefers the company of his computers, and his only friend, Guzzle. However, things change for the better. Kristie, a girl in his class, phones him one night. Kristie introduces Seb to Madeline and Jen, and the group become friends. Then a new computer teacher - Miss Adonia - brings a challenge back into schoolwork. So when Seb finds out that he has Asperger's Syndrome, he is not too concerned. Suddenly Guzzle starts to hang out with a group who had bullied Seb throughout the year. Seb reacts badly and ends up suspended from school. Miss Adonia agrees to tutor him so he can pass his exams, but she is not what she seems. Before long, Seb is caught up in a web of computer fraud and lies.
Things come to a head when Madeline is mistreated by her mother and Seb turns to Madeline's mysterious cyber friend for help.
