Reviews

"Should readily captivate readers and open eyes." -"Publishers Weekly"
"Baskin reveals not only the obstacles that Jason faces, but also his fierce determination to be himself at all costs. Jason is a believable and empathetic character in spite of his idiosyncrasies. Baskin also does a superb job of developing his parents and younger brother as real people with real problems, bravely traversing their lives with a differently abled child without a road map, but with a great deal of love."--"School Library Journal"
*"Baskin's delineation of an autistic boy's world is brilliant."--"Kirkus", starred review
* "Luminous....This is an enormously difficult subject, but Baskin, without dramatics or sentimentality, makes it universal."--"Booklist", starred review
"A children's book that's every bit as subtle and smart as the best adult novel."--"nytimes.com"
