Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco Stork

As Marcelo approaches his Senior year, his father gives him an ultimatum: work in the mail room at his law firm for the summer, or leave the sheltered world of his private school for students with special needs to attend public high school next year. Marcello's Asperger's syndrome makes learning to navigate the "real world" a challenge at first, but by the end, he finds he has a friend and the clarity and courage to make the right choices in a very complex situation.
