Love, love, love, love, love this book!

If you have never heard of Asperger's, you might be surprised to learn just how prevalent it is. This book is a wonderful portrayal of a character with Asperger's, and Erskine shows how very human she is. This book is powerfully written from a unique and well-executed perspective.

This is certainly a book worth reading if you are seeking to gain a better understanding of Asperger's or if you just want to expand your reading horizons and see a little more of the diversity of life.

Violence - Her brother has died in a school shooting, and there are mentions of the shooting, but none are graphic. There is a school bully who sometimes pulls people off of the monkey bars.
Sex - None
Language - I do not remember any
Alcohol/Drugs - I do not remember any
