Addie Darrow, the main character in A Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll, is autistic. Keedie, a secondary character, is also autistic.

From the publisher:

A Kind of Spark tells the story of 11-year-old Addie as she campaigns for a memorial in memory of the witch trials that took place in her Scottish hometown. Addie knows there’s more to the story of these ‘witches’, just like there is more to hers.

Can Addie challenge how the people in her town see her, and her autism, and make her voice heard? A story about friendship, courage and self-belief…
