It's truly moving, eye-op ening, incredibly vivid."--Jon Stewart, The Daily Show NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR The Wall Street Journal Bloomberg Business Bookish FINALIST FOR THE BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE FIRST BOOK AWARD NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER You've never read a book like The Reason I Jump. Written by Naoki Higashida , a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy wi th autism, it is a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic m ind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. P arents 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 curi ous, subtle, and complex life within. Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know. Questions such as: "Why do people with autism talk so loudly and weirdly?" "Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks?"

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 elusivene.
