Anything but Typical

By Brianna Vargas

A little about the book

Jason is a twelve year old boy with autism. He faces people that judge him every day because of his autism until he meets a girl online, that he thinks could be his first friend in a long time. But, he is also scared that user PhoenixBird (the girl) will judge him and not want to try and get to know him because of his autism if they meet in person.

How Jason learned to deal with his autism

Jason accepted the fact that he has autism and learned to deal with it. He controlled it, just like how his therapists taught him. And he learned to be a more confidant person.

"Luminous." -Booklist, starred review

Recommendation

I recommend this book because it shows other people the point of view of an autistic boy and everyday challenges he faces.
