Tween Tuesday: Kids Needs Characters with Autism Petition


The Wright and Wong Mysteries by Melinda Metz and Laura J. Burns were first published in 2005. The books feature two tween detectives who couldn't be more different- B. Orville Wright has Aspberger's Syndrome with a high IQ and great eye for detail where Agatha Wong is able to see the big picture. Together they make a great detective team.

This series is especially important because it features a main character with Aspberger's Syndrome. This is such an important topic and kids need to see main characters with Aspberger's and Autism featured in books. Authors Melinda and Laura have put together a petition asking for The Wright and Wong series to go back into print. 

If you believe in this important topic and series, please sign the petition. Hopefully together we can bring this great series back into the publishing world and into the hands of tween readers.

  1. The petition was blocked on our server; ;-( I'll have to look it up at home. But I did find good-condition copies of all four books on the used market - I looked at the reviews and decided we must have this series!
