Blue Bottle Mystery - The Graphic Novel: An Asperger Adventure

Blue Bottle Mystery - The Graphic Novel: An Asperger Adventure - Kathy Hoopmann I read this graphic novel through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love graphic novels and was eager to read this one that is described as an Asperger's Adventure. This is a short, but decent graphic novel introduction to what it is like to live with Asperger's Syndrome (AS). Ben has AS and him and his friend Andy find a blue bottle. Is there a genie and are their wishes being granted? All of a sudden Ben's life changes very dramatically in a short period of time. This story uses magical realism to convey what it is like for Ben to interact with teacher's, friends, and family as they all learn that he has Asperger's. However, this story only scratches the surface of what it is like to live with Asperger's, yet the graphic novel approach is nice. The illustrations are decent, but nothing glamorous. Overall, it is worth the short read for graphic novel enthusiasts.
