The Reason I Jump (2013) Naoki Higashida

Written by a 13 year old boy with autism spectrum disorder, this book provides excellent insight into the world of someone with autism.  It is a very easy read, written in a question and answer format, with questions such as “You seem to dislike holding hands with people” and “Why do you take ages to answer questions”.  This book is a ‘must read’ in terms of helping to understanding more about autism.
