 “Over the course of decades I have worked with thousands of students, including quite a number with Asperger’s Syndrome. My passion is helping students grow, succeed and excel” —Judith Tapscott.

Jack and Judith Tapscott’s first book The Hidden Pivot is a vivid and heart-warming window into the life of a child afflicted with an autism spectrum disorder.

The Hidden Pivot (Page Publishing, April 2015, Kindle $4.99) is poignant tale in which the protagonist—JJ—deals with growing up and finding oneself. JJ has always dreamed about becoming popular and belonging to the “in crowd.” For most people, gaining social approval usually entails having the right kind of personality and knowing how to get accepted by their peers.

JJ, however, is not like most people.

Diagnosed as a child with Asperger’s Syndrome, JJ has always struggled with relationships and has been regarded as “off” by his peers, school and community. And then there is JJ’s obsession with basketball. Growing up in Glendale, a town that regards its high-school basketball team as the focal point of the community, JJ has always imagined himself playing and starring on the team. JJ has a great deal of perseverance, but is well aware that perception is something that is almost impossible to overcome. While most avoid him, there are some who want JJ to succeed.

There is Mickey, a best friend who is always willing and wanting to give JJ advice. There is next-door neighbor Jenny: a kind, beautiful and sweet girl who is always patient with JJ and happens to be JJ’s secret crush. And, surprisingly, there is Dom, the all-around, popular and athletic kid who roots for the underdog.

But will their help be enough? Join JJ and his friends on an unforgettable journey as they try to help JJ realize his dream despite every obstacle thrown their way and inspire all those around them while doing so.

The Hidden Pivot will be available this summer in bookstores everywhere and online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, and Barnes & Noble.
