This thesis is a short novel written for a high-functioning autistic audience, about a high-functioning autistic student named Roger. It works on the strengths of autistic youth to create a story to which they can relate and from which they may hopefully learn. It is a character study above anything else, and creates a young student to whom both autistic and non-autistic students alike can relate.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
