Jason Blake is an autistic twelve-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 of 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. 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. By acclaimed writer Noral Raleigh Baskin, this is the breathtaking depiction of an autistic boy’s struttles- and a story for anyone who has ever worried about fitting in.
