Wonderful story of Healing

When I started reading this book, I had no idea it would take me on this wonderful trip into the mind of a girl like Caitlin. Born with Asperger's Syndrome, she is a high functioning, highly intelligient girl who develops her social skills and emotional perceptiveness throughout the book. Her drive is amazing and by the end of the journey, this spit-fire of a youngster with lots of confidence not only helps bring healing to her family, but to an entire community. I loved this book. Thanks, Ms. Erskine.

Excellent book for ALL readers

But especially parents of special needs kids. 2012 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. Wonderful book written in the first person by an Asperger’s girl whose older brother was killed in a shooting spree at the middle school. Caitlin is a hilarious character, finely drawn and oh so accurate. This is a laugh out loud story for any SNK parent/sibling/friend. It’s wonderful. Caitlin is wonderful, and so was Devon.
