April is National Autism Awareness Month

April is National Autism Awareness month, which was created to draw attention to the needs and awareness of people with Autism. The Autism Spectrum is a general term for a number of disorders involving brain development. These disorders typically manifest in difficulty in social interaction, communication, and motor coordination. Around 1 in 88 children are diagnosed as on the Autism spectrum, a number which has vastly increased in recent years. This month we want to highlight a few books that help us to understand the lives and minds of individuals with Autism from the challenges they face to all that we can learn from them.

Review: The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

The Glittering Court follows Elizabeth Witmore, am Osfridian countess who poses as her lady’s maid to escape an arranged marriage. Assuming her new identity as Adelaide Bailey, she runs away to the new world, Adoria, a world that represents freedom and adventure to her, and her ticket to Adoria is in joining the Glittering Court. The Glittering Court is a business designed to take poor working girls from Osfrid and train them up into a “new nobility” to marry richly in the Adorian colonies, which are overpopulated with men. Adelaide joins this crew hoping to blend in, not realizing that pretending a lack of noble knowledge is much harder than she thinks.
