I love books about young people with brain diseases/mental illness/illness/autism; the teenage boy in this book is autistic. This is ostensibly a mystery and I love mysteries also, but there wasn’t really much of a mystery here – the compelling thing to me about this book is the way this young man’s mind works. Many personality traits and behaviors of this character rang so very true, a few somewhat less so. But I really enjoyed his unusual narrative voice. Given the situation of this young man, I was pleasantly surprised because of the many humorous parts there were and I was very amused at times. It was a fun read.
