A Different Witch, by Debora Geary

Reviewed by Scott

Debora Geary considers issues of neurodiversity in the fifth book of her A Modern Witch series. As in all the previous books in the series, a witch is brought into the friendly chaos of Witch Central in Berkeley. However, since the protagonist in this case has Asperger syndrome, she does not welcome the noise and rich social interactions that the nexus offers, and, in fact, Beth struggles throughout the book against her desire to flee back to Chicago and the comforts and routines of her life there.

Beth appeared in a single scene back in the first book of the series, A Modern Witch. She was leading a coven in an occult shop in Chicago, and Jamie came to a meeting and told them essentially that they were doing everything wrong, demonstrated his superior powers and then left. Needless to say, Beth and rest of the coven resented his cavalier intervention, but it was hard to argue with the results.
