I just read a YA book, called The Turing Machinists by ME Reid, about a group of autistic teens’ attempt to win a rock band competition. I thoroughly enjoyed it, largely because it seemed to capture the issues and speech patterns of autistic youth. A bonus was the inclusion of information about Turing himself, the brilliant mathematician and computer science pioneer.

But I am not sure the title worked for me.  On the other hand, at the moment I cannot think of a better one.
