    11. This is easily one of the most inspirational books I ve ever read It would be that even if I didn t have a special needs son, one who reminds me a lot of Jason J Mac McElwain, even though my son has not been diagnosed with autism.The best thing about this book was the majority of it being told by McElwain s voice It reads like it was written by a teenager with autism, and that s a good thing It adds to the honesty of the book It was so nice to read about McElwain s life growing up and how everyt [...]

    12. I appreciated this book for two reasons Reason 1 It was written in the voice of Jason J Mac McElwain the author who is autistic, so that alone gave me insight into what it is like being autistic His narrative was repetitive in spots, but autistic people need repetition in order to feel safe In addition to this, a section of the novel goes a little bit in depth with references to authorities giving the reader further insight about autism Reason 2 the book is about basketball, my favorite sport J [...]

    13. Great story of J Mac the basketball manager of his senior basketball team who was put in for the final game and scored than 20 points went viral I like that although much of this book was written with another writer, J Mac narrates much of it including what it was like to grow up autistic with vignettes added in from his family, coaches, friends, etc Some struggling readers may be confused by the folding blanket plot line it doesn t proceed in chronological order and by the shifting narrator, b [...]

    15. I have mixed feelings about this book I love that it s a story of overcoming odds I love that it s written by J Mac in his own voice so it is an authentic telling of the story While I understand the J Mac loves basketball and that Senior Night game was a tremendous moment for him, I did not enjoy all of the talk about basketball and I would ve liked about his life outside of basketball I think this book would be a great read for those who are basketball fans, but if you re like me and don t enj [...]

    18. The strength of this book lies in its presentation of several viewpoints Most of the text is a transcript of the main author s spoken recollections of school, sports, and his contributions to the high school basketball team It s balanced by passages from his mother, coach, friends, which help to ground the story The pages of play by play action describing his famous few minutes sinking multiple 3 pointers in the final game of the season had me skimming, but still belonged there Disappointing tha [...]

    19. This book was a very insparational story and was a great example of how you should never give up I would recommend this book to everyone who loves to read an inspiaring story, any sports fan, and especially anyone that has a kid with disabilities or has disabilities themselves At some points I did lose interest in the book because of the reading level, but overall it was a very good book and I hope that all of you will give this book a shot as well

    20. I think this book is really cool I have had the opportunity to meet J mac multiple times and he is a very nice guy I think it is cool that his coach gave him the opportunity to play in that last game I think it is wrong that the kids locked him in the gym and other things that they did J mac lives for basketball He is also really smart about cross country This is a very good book I would strongly suggest this book to people.

    21. I really enjoyed this book and was taken by the many similarities between the development of Jason McElwain and my own autistic son, especially with regard to the role that sports and having an older brother to emulate played in their growth.I found myself chuckling out loud while reading some passages, and crying over others I think this book is great.

    22. If you like basketball, this is you book I don t I am giving it 3 stars because it was a good eye opener for anyone who has no clue as how a autistic feels in the moment of triumph I was hoping for of a memoir from beginning of his life to end of the day of the game but got a play by play of the day of the game with a tidbit of his life here and there.

    23. Great job, Jason, J Mac for an incredible job, not only on the basketball court, but in telling your story You are inspirational to us all It was also neat to read the others perspectives, and have J Mac respond to them Admittedly, the book felt a little slow in the beginning, but it picked up once J Mac started narrating.

    24. This book really shows you how kids with autism strugggle with daily life Also if you are someone like me who dosent think making like 4 3 point shots in a 4 minute time period youll change your mind after reading this book I was really pigheaded to think that and see know how amazing it really is.

    25. I know almost nothing about basketball, but it didn t matter this book can make a deep impression on anyone The Game of My Life gives a small but eye opening glimpse into the life of a tremendous young man who happens to be autistic, mostly because Jason himself wrote it Yes, the narrative might be slightly repetitive, but the story of Jason s struggles and triumph is well worth it.

    26. This was a great book about the video that went around a while ago about the autistic boy who sunk shot after shot at his high school s basketball game It was touching, mostly because Jason, himself, was the author.Video link youtube watch v ngzyhn

    27. I enjoyed reading Jason J Mac McElwain s account with some help from Daniel Paisner of his Senior Night basketball experience I particularly appreciated Mr Paisner s allowing Jason s voice as an individual with autism to be heard in the story.
