Anything_but_typical.jpgMCBA home

Told from the point-of-view of an autistic boy, Jason tells his story, how his way of seeing the world and all the challenges in it is different than "Neuro-typicals," or people who have traditional brain function. Writing stories on a website online, Jason enjoys finding a "friend" who appreciates his stories. But when he finds out he may meet her in person at a writing conference, he worries that the differences that make classmates uncomfortable, will also turn her away. If you like realistic fiction, read this - you'll come away with a new appreciation and understanding of the autistic.
