READ THIS BOOK.
Seriously, that's the best way I know of to describe this book. It's incredible. Just read it.
This book is a must-read for anyone with autism or a loved one with autism. Interoception is the ability to feel the inside of your body (heartbeat, hunger, pain, etc.). People with autism tend to have a weakened interoceptive sense and have a harder time feeling things like hunger. This book talks more about what it is and how to help it.
One of the few beginner chess books written by a world champion, Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess is a phenomenal book for beginners at chess. If you aren’t sure if this book is for your skill level, then it’s a perfect book for you. I would recommend it for anyone who is under an 1100 rating.
I first read this book because my younger brother read it for his school's required reading. All the books I've read by this author bring a very novel (see what I did there?) concept.
In the Arc of a Scythe series, Neal Shusterman presents a new take on the dystopian future genre. He describes a utopian future with the protagonists trying to stop a group of people from destroying the utopia. While there are some glaring flaws in the grammar and plot, the uniqueness of the series makes for a great read.
Hounded reminds me of The Lightning Theif's older sibling. It's the start of an urban fantasy series based on Irish mythology. It is the first book I bought at this store, and I immediately fell in love with this series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy or mythology.
The Glass Castle is a tragic but uplifting memoir about the challenges Jeanette and her siblings faced due to their parents' dysfunction. I first read it because it was a required reading in high school, but it is one of the few nonfiction books I love.
