Win a FREE copy of Look Me in the Eye !

CommonReads is bringing you another chance to win a wonderful and timely book for your program’s consideration.

Ever since he was small, John Robison had longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits—an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother in them)—had earned him the label “social deviant.”

Selected by Defiance College and SUNY Potsdam for their common reading programs and also used in high school and college courses throughout the country, Look Me in the Eye is the story of one man’s struggle with Aspberger’s Syndrome, a form of autism, before the diagnosis ever existed. It is also a look into the family life he left at age sixteen to go on the road with KISS for (whom he created  legendary fire-breathing guitars) and a reverse angle glimpse at the younger brother he left behind, who would later change his name to Augusten Burroughs and pen Running With Scissors.

Comment below for your chance to win one of FIVE copies of Look Me in the Eye. Offer is available only in the United States.
