Definitely an improvement. Good thing, too - this book is the reason I've been recommending the new editions to everybody :) This is not only now a fairly good representation of an explicitly autistic character* but also a rare representation of an autistic character of color.

* Some people have noted that both Nita and especially Dairine show no small number of autistic traits. There may be a reason enough autistics were invested in this series to complain to the author!
