Anything but Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin is one of those books that you start reading and can't stop. The book is about Jason, a 12 year old autistic boy who likes a girl that he met online. The author does an amazing job of getting inside the head of her character and letting the reader understand the world from his point of view. Jason is not typical and when you begin reading, you may think you and he have nothing in common. However as you continue to read, you find out you really aren't that different from Jason. If you've ever worried about fitting in, or how other people think about you, this is a wonderful read.
