Another beautiful, emotional entry in the Young Wizards series, this time focusing on a new young wizard with autism. I understand that there has been an evolving controversy about Duane's handling of autism in this story--specifically in terms of the end of the story--and that Duane has actually revised the story in later versions to align better with our current understanding of autism, which was substantially different at the time of her writing. Ending and controversy aside, however, I thought Duane did a fine job of casting an autistic character in a lead--and quite literally "empowered"--role, and allowing me as a reader to see through his eyes in both concrete and abstract-but-emotionally-resonant ways, as I got to know Darryl through Nita and Kit's respective interactions with him both in the real world, and through the lens of their collective wizardries.
