I Wonder Why I Have Autism was six years in the making. Started by a particularly difficult time in Jacob’s life.
When he was younger, fourteen-year-old Jacob Tanner knew he was different than other children his age; everything was hard for him to learn. He couldn’t play in physical education or cut with scissors like others nor ride a bike. He didn’t know how to talk to other kids, but he worked hard every day because he wanted to be like everyone else.
In I Wonder Why I Have Autism, Tanner shares his story of what living with high-functioning autism is like. Written from his perspective, he talks about school, learning, teachers, friends, pets, and his challenges and his wins. In addition, he offers insights from his friends and his parents.
I Wonder Why I Have Autism is a tool to be used by God to give hope to kids who have struggles like Jacob’s and to the parents of those children who need guidance to help them.
