Samantha Stanko

I have more pictures of my cats than I do friends on Facebook. I tie my shoelaces in bunny ears because I never learned how to loop, swoop & pull. I have this problem where I fall in love with fictional characters. I like to write about oppression, resistance and existence. Make me laugh and I'll love you forever. One day I will use my mutant Asperger's superpowers to set the world on fire.

Review: Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

This book was awarded the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, but as well intentioned as it might have been, it was clearly written by someone with almost no understanding of what Aspies are really like—it was written by and for a neurotypical audience.

Review: Rogue by Lyn Miller-Lachmann

What I love most about Kiara—and the novel itself—is that she is unflinchingly genuine. Sooner or later, most Aspie characters written by neurotypicals eventually become caricatures. Having an Autistic character written by an actual Aspie makes all the difference.
