On the Spectrum tells the story of a teenage girl's trip to Paris and the lessons her autistic brother teaches her about life.

Growing up in the shadow of a famous mother, Clara has never felt good about her body. Now, at 16, she has an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating. After a social media disaster, she decides to escape for the summer to Paris to stay with her estranged dad and her six-year-old brother, Alastair, who is on the autism spectrum.

Charged with his care, Clara and Alastair set out to explore Paris, and a handsome young French baker teaches Clara about first love and a new love of food. While Alastair teachers Clara about patience, trust and the beauty of loving without judgment. (From Second Story Press)
