Local autistic teen writes book

The author of the poetry book is a relative unknown...but he happens to be a local high schooler.
Fifteen-year-old Moschella--an incoming Sweetwater High School sophomore--has been writing poetry since sixth grade, filling up composition books to deal with his autism/Asperger's syndrome.
