New Book Review

Anything but typical

By Nora Raleigh Baskin

“It’s easy to listen with the wild drone of the airplane. It is like a giant vacuum that sucks up all the other noise. Nobody even hears when you pass gas out loud on a plane”. Jason Blake does a lot of listening and figuring out of things inside his head. He doesn’t speak much and sometimes he does weird things, like shaking his hands in the air or making silly faces. Jason Blake is autistic and this is his story about how he can be himself.

This is a really good story showing us how people who are different to the normal people in this world, can find ways to cope on their own.
