This book was so moving. The characters were believable and I felt for Jonathan for everything he went through, all his paina and anguish and his growth throughout the story. He changed so much and came to realize some very important lessons. I really liked the "there are different kinds of smart" message in the book because I am going to school to become a teacher and have heard about Multiple Intelligences. This is something I want to promot and remember as I teach. I think this book can open the eyes of people to see what kind of things kids have to deal with in school and with peers. Even though it takes place in 1964, I couldn't help but feel that this book could easily take place in modern times. The only complaints I may have is that it seemed a little slow in the beggining and I wish there had been more to the ending. But, Beautiful book and something I will be recommending to others.
