This book gives readers insight to the struggles and challenges that students with autism deal with on a daily basis. Written from the point of view of Jason, a twelve year old autistic boy, the book does a remarkable job portraying his life. He strives to have normal relationships and friendships, but finds it difficult due to his disorder. The book can be a little bit confusing at times because it is hard to tell the difference between his thoughts and what is actually happening in the book. Jason's only escape from the world is his writing - it's the only thing that calms him down and gives him great joy. The book makes you appreciate the patience and kindness that his mom, dad, and brother have. As a general education teacher, I would recommend this book to other educators. I don't have a lot of experience working with autistic children, but I feel like the book makes you understand this disorder from a new perspective. Overall, a great read with a heartfelt message.

This book gives a wonderful, realistic insight into how a kid in the autism spectrum works from the inside, without being trite or condescending. He wants many of the same things all kids want, but he just operates a bit differently. As an elementary school librarian, I work with a variety of children with many personalities and needs, and this book showed me how sometimes what adults think is the obvious way of helping a child can be exactly what he doesn't need. A must read for educators on all levels. A great pairing with Cynthia Lord's "Rules" for upper elementary or middle school discussion. My fifth grade son loves it and has read it several times. It not only validates any child's feelings that he and his problems are unique, but also gives a window into how everyone has their own inner motivations and compensations to get through their days, which often cause misunderstandings with the parents in their lives. Then ending is somewhat obvious to adults, but the right way to end. The cover art on the hardcover is lovely--the paperback might appeal or put off some kids.
