YA Fiction - coming of age, girl's mom died a Name that Book (octubre 2011)


I really loved this book. I wish that I had it to read it when my brother, who is autistic. Jason Blake is a twelve year old, intelligent, a creative writer and unsure of himself. I even liked the book for the many writing tips that Jason offered in his narrative. Not wanting to look people in the eyes because it gives too much information to process is something that my brother and Jason share. I remember too that my brother and Jason have a tendency to wear belts too tight. Rocking and flapping hands are very common, especially with younger children with autism.

One of the biggest problems is feeling accepted and bullies can definitey cause great distress! I always that my brother was struggling in our mostly neurotypical world. My heart went out for Jason and I immediately knew why he was relieved with his girl friend was blind. Rebecca, definitely would not be looking directly into his. It is bad that her voice in the e-mails was changed when she met him in person. Friendships can be difficult to develop when you are neurotypical but much worse for neuro diverse people.

I really got engaged in this book and wish that the author would continue with Jason Blake as an older person. It would interesting to read about him as a teenager. I would also welcome a book about an autistic person at a much older age!

I highly recommend this book.

Jason is twelve and he is autistic. He writes this story as well as he can so that non-autistic people, neurotypicals, can understand it. It's interesting to see what it is like for Jason to be autistic, but it's just as interesting to read all the true statements he makes about neurotypicals that a lot of people never really talk about. Like how most neurotypicals seem to have a lot of trouble listening and saying what they mean - and why do neurotypicals say so much without meaning anything? Jason is smart and funny, and he's brave enough to mention a lot of the bull**** that people don't usually talk about.… (més)
