If you work with or know anyone with autism spectrum disorder, please read this book.... Anything But Typical, by Nora Raleigh Baskin. Told from the point of view of Jason, a high functioning sixth grader, we get a realistic peak into the day-to-day life of a "12-year-old living in a neurotypical world." I especially liked the way Baskin depicted Jason's parents and brother who are traversing their lives with a differently-abled child without a road map, but with a lot of love. Jason has great talent along with his challenges. He is a gifted writer and through online writing sites, like Storyboard, he meets PhoenixBird, ..... a girl. We see that Jason, along with his autism struggles, has the same issues of courage and confusion as any boy his age.
