With a Twist
I don't really know what this blog is, but if you all figure it out, feel free to tell me.



My lifes not going too great at the moment. I had planned to have petted at least 40% of the dogs on planet earth by now and I have petted maybe 0.5% of the dogs.

I just did the math and it turns out 0.5% of the dogs on the planet is 26 million and I dont even think I’ve petted that many :(

"As someone diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, I have experienced this first-hand. Over the past decade, books and other media depictions of people on the autism spectrum have proliferated. While Temple Grandin and John Elder Robison, both diagnosed on the autism spectrum, have published acclaimed memoirs for adult readers, fiction for children and teens with protagonists and major secondary characters on the spectrum is predominantly the work of outsiders. (I would consider neurotypical parents of children on the spectrum to occupy an in-between position, but one with its own baggage.)

I approach each new book written by outsiders with trepidation. These books tend to define us by our disabilities rather than showing us living our lives day-to-day.”

In honor of Disability in Kidlit's one-year anniversary, you have a chance to win a signed/personalized copy of Lyn Miller-Lachmann’s MG contemporary novel Rogue, which features a protagonist on the autism spectrum. Simply leave a comment on the WordPress post or reblog this Tumblr post. (Yes, doing both increases your chances!) In one week, we’ll select a single winner from one of these locations. This giveaway is open to North American addresses.

The book in question seems really rad (a neurodiverse main character interacting with X-Men and its’ ability to serve as parallel in some ways to the struggles of people who deal with disability in an ableist world is a great theme) and I’m trying to build up a more diverse library of YA and kids lit for recommending to little brothers and co.

The Ultimate Truth


There is no such thing as “too many dragons.” There is only “not enough dragons” and “still not enough dragons.”
