Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tom Parks

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Jason Blake is a 12-year-old autistic boy who is trying to be understood in a "neurotypical" world. He tries to speak the NTs' language but finds they aren't good listeners. Nora Raleigh Baskin lets us see inside the mind of a bright young man struggling to be accepted for who he is. Tom Parks is the voice of this extraordinary preteen who is determined to tell his story in his own voice, but in the language neurotypicals speak and understand. Parks's delivery is concise, even as he communicates the stifled confusion that language presents to kids on the autism spectrum. He brings to life an inspiring new hero in a story greatly enhanced by its transition to audio. N.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
