Eighteen-year-old Burnie Rollinson has Asperger's syndrome, which is an autism spectrum disorder. People with Aspergers have difficulty with communication, eye contact and maintaining relationships. His mother has - for a long time - wanted to write a book to help people better understand the feelings of children with autism. As Faiza Elmasry tells us, she has now published If You Were Me, with illustrations on each page by her son.
