Summary

By acclaimed writer Nora Raleigh Baskin, this is the eye-opening depiction of an autistic boy's daily and lifelong struggles to exist in a "neurotypical" world. The only place sixth grader Jason Blake can be himself is online, where he posts the short stories he writes.

It's there that Jason finds Rebecca. Though the two have common ground, Jason can't face the consequences that meeting Rebecca might bring - but if he doesn't meet her, there's no chance to have a real relationship.

This is a pitch-perfect portrait of autism, but no more than that, a story for anyone who has ever worried about fitting in.

Anything but Typical

I enjoyed this story very much. The performance could have been better because his dialogue was much louder than his narration, and that hurts my ears.
