Description: Now in paperback: “An impressive achievement...Not likely to be forgotten anytime soon.”(Washington Times) Here is the riveting true story of Jason McElwain— better known as “J-Mac”—the autistic student who made headlines when he scored twenty points, including a school record six three-pointers, for his high school basketball team in 2006. Including the revealing perspectives of J-Mac’s family and coach, this is McElwain’s inspiring account of the challenges of growing up autistic—not only for himself, but for his family. It’s also the tale of his unlikely star turn, the difference it made in his journey through life—and all the heartbreaking and heart-lifting stops along the way.
