But there are some questions he cana€™t answer, like why she always gets into trouble, and how do kids with Aspergera€™s syndrome make friends? Kiara has a difficult time with other kids. They taunt her and she fights back. Now shea€™s been kicked out of school. She wishes she could be like her hero Roguea€”a misunderstood X-Men mutant who used to hurt anyone she touched until she learned how to control her special power.
