An acclaimed writer delivers an eye-opening depiction of an autistic boy''s daily life and lifelong struggles to exist in a neurotypical world, in a groundbreaking novel told from the boy''s perspective.
From the Publisher:
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 to the same online site as he does.

Jason can be himself when he writes and he thinks that PhoneixBird-her name is Rebecca-could be his first real friend. But as desperate as Jason is to met her, he's terrified that if they do meet, Rebecca wil only see his autism and not who Jason really is.By acclaimed writer Nora Raleigh Baskin, this is the breathtaking depiction of an autistic boy's struggles-and a story for anyone who has ever worried about fitting in.

Annotation:
Jason Blake finds writing to be an excellent outlet from his daily life. Diagnosed with autism in the third grade, Jason is now in the fifth and struggles to behave like the "neurotypicals" he is surrounded by. Posting his writing online to Storyboard, Jason strikes up a friendship with a girl. He's delighted, but when he finds out that his parents want to take him to a Storyboard conference, Jason becomes scared that meeting Rebecca in person won't work. A wonderful exploration of family, this middle gravel novel is written with humor and pathos. A 2010 Schneider Family Book Award for Best Middle Grade Book.

Praise

"While humor resonates throughout the book, the pathos of Jason's situation is never far from readers' consciousness." 03/01/2009
