What a beautiful, interesting, funny, sad, lovely book. Completely satisfying from start to end, I was engrossed from the very beginning. I initially hesitated, unsure if the plot as summarized would be something that would interest me; I'm so glad I decided to give it a try.
Experiencing the events as they unfolded from the perspective of this sweet boy touched my heart and kept me thoroughly enthralled. Although the book was not told from the viewpoint of the father, it's written in such a way as to have you relate to his experience as well.
For me, this was one of those books that stayed with me all day, playing through my mind at work while I waited for the opportunity to hear more of the story. The narration was fantastic and fit perfectly.
Without a doubt a five star selection.

An endearing glimpse, with heart-stirring grit of daily life, into the life of a 15 year-old boy afflicted with an autism-like condition. Very cleverly written from the boy's viewpoint and well-narrated (same narrator as Life of Pi). Lots of pathos, humor, reality, and insight. Do not think you failed to download an early chapter -- this becomes an amusing part of the story, or that you have bought a children's book that can be read to children -- it will deepen all too soon.
