Anything But Typical Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've read several books like this one written in first person, and this one is the most surprising, and the most satisfying. Jason is very believable, and his descriptions of his behavior give the reader a very clear understanding of his feelings. The most amazing part of this story for me was the depiction of his parents, both doing everything they can to help him, and yet dealing with their own insecurities and issues (his mother especially). The characters around Jason are very balanced between those who genuinely try to help him, the who try to "deal" with him, and those who are outright hostile to someone who is different.
