Snub Club draws the reader in from the very first page and holds their attention with the often humorous but important theme that says being different is not a bad thing after all. We go on an adventurous journey with Jackie and his close friend Cameron as they attempt to navigate through their first year of Middle School. However, when you drop in a bit of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) along with ADHD plus one tough and ornery bully things become close to impossible! Then out of nowhere, the teachers begin morphing into something other than educators and things really begin getting weird. Snub Club allows the reader to completely and safely escape into a fantasy world while going on an exciting adventure. The reader will be introduced to bullies and different ways to deal with them. As if all of this wasn’t already enough our heroes Jackie and Cameron suddenly find themselves on the case of trying to discover what has happened to their nice, calm teachers and how they must fix it ASAP. Along the way the boys discover that having Autism doesn’t have to be bad at all. The reader will stimulate and expand their inner imaginations, stretch their attention span, and learn to empathize with the problems of others while connecting with their own feelings and emotions.
