    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.

Oof, I have mixed feelings on this one. I picked this up because the protagonist is an autistic girl (though the term Aspergers is still used here as it was published before the DSM-V). As an autistic woman myself, I was very curious to see how well she'd be portrayed. I initially assumed this was written by an autistic author but when I started reading it, it was pretty clear it was written from a neurotypical point of view (it turns out the author's daughter is autistic and Caitlin was inspired by her).

It really bothered me that Caitlin's counsellor was so adamant to make Caitlin act more like neurotypicals by forcing her to make eye-contact, not to stim, to make friends when she didn't want to, etc. Though it was realistic - as neurotypicals tend to believe we need to fit in in order to be happy - it also enforced the notion that we can ignore autistic people's needs simply because they differ from the 'standard'. It hit really close to home, especially because the counsellor was portrayed as a nice person who has good intentions, when she mainly made Caitlin feel bad for being the way she is. I also really didn't like that Caitlin is illustrated as someone who lacks empathy - autistic people aren't inherently unempathetic, we just show our empathy differently, sometimes even because we're hyperempathetic. It's a common misconception and I wish a topic as sensitive to the autistic community as empathy was treated more carefully, especially as it is a major theme in the story.

Aside from my complaints, I did enjoy this story. It's concise, easy to read and deals with important issues, such as loss, grief and violence. I particularly resonated with the way Caitlin was treated by her classmates, as that was similar to my own experiences. I think the author did well on illustrating Caitlin as her own person, I just wish she would have consulted her daughter to make it more accurate, as this is written in first person. Still, the autistic representation isn't bad - it's actually heartwarming at times - it was just too stereotypical for my liking. ( )

In this book a young girl, diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, has a hard time coping with the death of her brother. With this she has a hard time socializing and communicating with others making it hard to have friends. I gave this book a five star rating because it can teach kids that not everyone is the same and people are going through things that we may not be able to see. In this book the young girl was good at art, so others have to realize that not everyone is good at the same things. Everyone has different talents and we have to realize not everyone is the same.

Caitlin is a fifth grader who has Asperger's syndrome. She lived at home with her brother Devin, and her father. Until her life was shattered, and the she knew as normal was gone when Devin was killed in a school shooting. Devin was her best friend, he taught her how to deal with life with Asperger's, now that he is gone , Caitlin is forced to maneuver things on her own. Through her journey of learning closure, she realizes the meaning of friendship, and the importance of having friends in her life.
This was such an amazing story of resilience! This young girl with Asperger's is so determined to learn about life. Not once did she allow her exceptionality hold her back. My favorite part in the book was the moment that Caitlin realized her empathy, as she cried for Devin's sadness. ( )
