I thought this book was really incredible. I read it in one sitting. I was glad that Lord didn't shy away Catherine's difficult and conflicted feeling about having an autistic brother. I thought the relationship she built between Catherine and Jason was natural and touching.

I think Catherine is also a really relate-able character on a more general level. I haven't experienced any of what went on in Catherine's family life, but her propensity for daydreaming and getting her hopes up about a friend who might not be as friendly as she imagined was spot on.

On a separate note, I really enjoyed the way the book was structured, with each chapter branching off of a different one of the rules from Catherine's list.
