I assume the author either has personal experience of Asperger's Syndrome or did an awful lot of research. The first person voice of this novel is superbly rendered. Despite the cover blurbs, I didn't find it funny. In fact the wince factor is pretty high. Neither would I call it a murder mystery. Instead, I'd call it a fascinating character study of a compromised boy.
