It is written by a 13 year old autistic Japanese boy. The book is from his point of view. It was translated by David Mitchell's wife.

I bought it a while ago and read it and for some reason I didn't care for it.  I am grateful that this young man so willingly opened up to us about his life and the world as he sees it and it would be great to see more books like his out there.  I guess his world, as it were, is so very different than my son's and I wouldn't want everyone to think his experience of autism is how it is for everyone.  But I encourage people to read it because it is fascinating, so if you can get your hands on it I would go for it.  :)

Never read it. I have read Dancing with David. It's about a mother's journey into her son's world. I also read the Carly Fleishmann book. Both were really good reads.

I read some if the reviews and a couple of people had similar comments.


Quoting Ajisai43:
