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 PhoenixBird – her name is Rebecca – could be his first real friend. But as desperate as Jason is to meet her, he’s terrified that if they do meet, Rebecca will only see his autism and not who Jason really is. “This is an enormously difficult subject, but Baskin, without dramatics or sentimentality, makes it universal.” - Booklist, starred review Download and start listening now!

    " I think this is a good children's book to breach the subject of people being different and the struggles that come with Autistic Spectrum disorders. "

    " For some reason, this one reminded me of Sherman Alexie's Part Time Indian. For me, this story was just ok. I'm not sure what I was supposed to take away from it. "

    " I adored this book, by probably the tenth page. Despite how simple it is to read, it's got a lot to think about. I think by the time I was finished, my roommate was sick of my shoving it under his nose and pointing to a passage. "
