Over the summer, senior Austin Lin published his own children’s book, "The Not-So-Ordinary Recollections of an Ordinary Teenager."

The book takes on the perspective of a teenager who moves from California to Connecticut. It is written in a diary format with each ‘chapter’ being different journal entries. The driving force of the plot is the main character’s autistic brother, Herbie, who struggles with acclimating to a new community.
