The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism
by Naoki Higashida, David Mitchell
Over 6,000 5-Star Reviews!
The Reason I Jump is a one-of-a-kind memoir, written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism.
Higashida 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.
With disarming honesty and a generous heart, Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights—into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory—are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again.
Named one of the Best Books of the Year By: NPR, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Business, and Bookish.
