Summary and reviews of Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin

Wandering around the young adult section of the bookstore three years ago, I felt myself magnetically pulled to Anything But Typical. Why do I identify so closely with Jason Blake? Is it because we are both writers? Is it because we both have the same three letters—ASD, autism spectrum disorder —referring to us? It is his outsider status as autistic that allows him to achieve the insights about the social world in which he lives. As Jason observes from the background, he shows us the cruelty, the love, and the connections that we share as flawed people with a range of abilities. His dentist tells him that he brushes his teeth too firmly.

Thank you! People say year-old Jason Blake is weird. When he meets a fellow writer named Rebecca online and has the chance to meet her in person at a Storyboard conference, he panics. What will happen to their comfortable online relationship when she meets him? Readers even get some tips about writing short stories as they observe Jason composing his way to self-acceptance.

Sign up for our newsletters! Much has been written in the news media over the last decade or so about the rise in incidences of autism spectrum disorders among children. Many of these journalistic accounts, however, focus on the parents, teachers and caregivers of these autistic children, not on the children themselves. Now, as a sixth grader, Jason has had enough therapy and individualized attention to allow him to be fully included in his classroom, but every day is still a challenge for him. He has no real friends, although one or two children are kind to him. Jason does feel safe and loved at home.
