Fourteen-year-old Armond Isaak says he chose to write about his personal struggles with Asperger's syndrome in his book, "Armond Goes to a Party" to inspire his peers. / KARE-TV

A Minnesota teenager hopes his story will show young people with autism that they are not alone.

Fourteen-year-old Armond Isaak was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a condition on the autism spectrum, while in the third grade. Now, he's co-authored a book with children's book author and illustrator Nancy Carlson.

In Armond Goes to a Party, scheduled for release on April 15, Armond focuses on a moment in which he felt overwhelmed and invisible at a party.

"If you have Asperger's syndrome, you are really good in your brain and your brain is wired a different way, so you are really good maybe at drawing or school," he tells KARE-TV. "But your social level is not as high," Armond said.

Armond says he hopes his story will benefit all kids. He adds that his newfound status as an author likely won't go unnoticed at school.

He won't be a "random kid in the hallway," he said. "I'll be the author in the hallway."
