    Anything But Typical de Nora Raleigh Baskin (kimby365)
    kimby365: "Typical" has a male protagonist and involves high-functioning autism (different from Asperger's in a few ways), and it's written completely differently, but both books offer a great insight into the minds of young individuals on the autism spectrum.

Fifth-grader Caitlin lives with her grieving father; her brother Devon was killed in a school shooting, and Devon was the one who explained the world to her. Caitlin has Asperger's, and now the person who helps most is Miss Brook, the school counselor. Book-smart artist Caitlin decides she needs to find Closure, but closure proves easier to define than achieve. At last, however, Caitlin, her father, and their whole community find some measure of closure: Caitlin and her father finish Devon's Eagle Scout project and donate it to the middle school. Caitlin also becomes friends with Michael, a first-grader whose mother was also killed in the shooting.

I've had all the empathy I can take right now. Empathy can make you feel really sad. (128)

Empathy isn't as hard as it sounds because people have a lot of the same feelings. (219) ( )

As having a few people with autism in my life, this was insightful to thought patterns and reasoning. ( )

A wonderful book! Two hard subjects to broach, so many moments of understanding and points of tenderness. ( )

This is an amazing story which captures what it is like to be a child on the autism spectrum. I work in special education, and my students love it. ( )
  AliciaBooks | Jul 13, 2021 |
This is such a beautiful story, and a worthy companion to Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird, a favourite of mine which the central character refers to often.

Caitlin Smith is a ten year old girl with Asperger's who loses her elder brother to a school shooting before the book opens. The first person narration is honest, humorous in places and also heartbreakingly poignant - I actually teared up in places! I would never have chosen a book about a child on the spectrum but for the Mockingbird connection, but now I'm so glad that I did. I love her coping mechanisms, like preferring books and films to people, but also appreciated her struggle with emotions and empathy - Caitlin's view of the world is very literal, which adults struggle with and other children openly mock. I really felt for her when trying to make friends in the school cafeteria.

The characters are very similar to Lee's, which was a bonus for me - widowed father Harry is openly struggling to balance his deep grief over losing Devon, his son, with meeting Caitlin's very particular needs, and we learn from Caitlin what a calming and caring influence Devon was in her life. Finding 'Closure' in completing the Scouts project that Devon and his father were working on before his death is a beautiful touch.

I just can't recommend this short novel enough and I will definitely read the story again and again! ( )
