    Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, The Reason I Jumpis a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within.

    What did you love best about The Reason I Jump?

    The naration. The narator explained well and with a sense of discriptive realism. Also,the plot kept me interested and wanting to find out "What's next".

    The ending, though very emotional, it was tender and loving!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when the little boy realized that he was dead.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it made me cry. It was very emotional at the end. It made me examined my life with my grand children and how I would feel if this happened in our family. I almost felt a loss. Very touching!


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend this book for parents , even if you do not have a child with Autism. Also, I recommend it to educators because there are suggestions to follow in helping children with Autism. Plus after reading it you will feel that you understand a little bit more.
