I know this story is mostly about Jason about how he deals with his autism but to me the real strength of this story lies in the minor charactersJason s dad nearly made me cry than once because he knows his son has his own way to communicate and just because his way is different doesn t mean it s bad different He s always supporting his son making sure that everybody understands that Jason isn t stupidJeremy Jason s little brother was absolutely adorable I just wanted to hug him during the entire book He understands his brother has some boundaries he knows when he s doing something his brother can t bare and he stops doing it he s proud of Jason all the time and that was beautiful to readAt first I wasn t huge fan of Jason s mother because I thought she wasn t even trying to understand her son but who am I to judge I don t have a son with autism so I don t really have a right to say that she s doing something wrong Okay she says some things that aren t acceptable but I liked how at the end of the story she finally sees that the real problem isn t how Jason reacts to the world but the way she reacts to JasonThat was a really uick read but also really powerful35

Jason Blake is an autistic 12 year old living in a neurotypical world Most days it’s just a matter of time before something goes wrong But Jason finds a glimmer of understanding when he comes across PhoenixBird who posts stories. My confession is that as a father of two boys on the spectrum that I seem to be particularly hard on books about kids with autism I think this seems on the surface ungenerous and working against the kind of solidarity one hopes for in the autism community But here we go I listened to this book and disliked the reader so that s not Baskin s fault I thought overall that it was fineA book about an atypical neurological condition called Anything But Typical meaning that the main boy character Jason is anything but neuro typical This signals that the book is no so much a novel about a young man as it is about a kid with ASD it is about a topic Autism The good part of that is that the young intended middle grade audience will be educated about how the kids that are on the spectrum think and feel Jason is a remarkably talented writer who shares his work online and because of some of his atypicality is bullied and has no friends He thinks one girl Rebecca who also writes online might be a possible friend even girlfriendBaskin has Jason admit early on that he is going to tell his story in the NT way since others might not understand the way he would depict how he REALLY thinks and feels That s an interesting way of dealing with a real narrative problem and not entirely satisfying for me but I understand why she does this given the audienceI like the depiction of the parents the Dad as calm and supportive and the Mom as anxious and disappointed that her son is not what she really had hoped for in a child I also like that the story does not give the sense of happily ever after I like it that he is sometimes out of control and even violent in school when things do not go his way I hate romanticized portraits of kids with autism and this has hopeful things how success in writing and less than hopeful things his rigidity his lack of friends Otherwise I thought this was just solid and hopefully useful for kids and parents who want to get some sense of how ASD kids think and feel

    I think this is a pretty good portrayal of how a high functioning autistic boy would think and act I have Asperger's Syndrome so they say and although I do better than Jason I can recognize a lot of my problems in him The conflict with the story convention is well done and I thought the ending was perfect hopeful and realistic Very good story

    Wouldn't it be nice if life were this easy? I'm all for books that raise awareness of autism but not only does this book portray autistic people as being asocial computer geeks it also paints the world through rose coloured glasses
