The Reason I Jump

By Naoki Higashida (Author), KA Yoshida (Translator), David Mitchell (Translator)

Written by Naoki Higashida, a smart, self-aware, and charming thirteen-year-old boy, this is a one-of-a-kind memoir that 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. Naoki’s book, in its beauty, truthfulness, and simplicity, is a gift to be shared.
