Caitlin is an intelligent girl with Asperger's syndrome who is dealing with the loss of her older brother.
This is a beautifully written book, and not to be missed. Caitlin is a memorable character with a unique viewpoint, and her relationships with her father, teachers, and classmates are skillfully drawn. The plot includes references to violence which may be disturbing for some readers.
"We are at recess and I think Mrs. Brooks might have Asperger's too because she is very persistent which is one of my skills. She is stuck on her Let's Make Friends idea even though I am making it very clear with my eyes that I am no longer interested in this conversation."
