It sounds intriguing to me, especially since I work with people like the young detective in the novel.

This book is on my list, too. I plan to read it next, after I finish Three Junes (which you recommeded, and which I am enjoying so far).

My daughter picked this book out when we were in London (it was in the young adults section)--she hasn't read it yet, but I did. The narrator reminded me so much of a preschooler I taught last year. I would highly recommend this book--it offers a unique perspective. READ IT!

I head to the bookstore tomorrow. I've read most of the nonfiction books about Asperger's and I've worked with many kids who fit that profile but the idea of reading a novel written in the first person by an Asperger's teen is quite intriguing. I'm looking forward to it.

It's a timely read for me. I've been frustrated in my work with a particular student with autism and I'd forgotten just how anxious he must feel.
Whether or not you're associated with anyone on the autistic spectrum, this book is still a worthy read. We can see bits of ourselves in this character too. We all have some "autistic" qualities but a lucky accident of birth has provided most of us with a sensible distribution of them.
