The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism - Naoki Higashida

Staff Pick

Written by then 13-year-old Naoki, The Reason I Jump is a wonderful collection that answers the never-ending slew of questions regarding autism. Naoki has autism; he has a hard time communicating and every day social situations make him nervous and frustrated. But his language isn’t stunted. He’s intelligent, charming, and driven to achieve his goals and dreams. Inspired to educate the world on the mystery of the autistic brain, Naoki wrote this book, answering questions like “why do you talk so loud?”, “why don’t you make eye contact?” and, yes, even “why do you jump?”
