Young adult book about an autistic boy, his family and the disappearance of his cousin. I loved how British this book is! I felt the author treated autism with respect. Although it is clear Ted has Asperger's, she doesn't come out and say this. His quirks are mentioned, but in a realistic and non-patronizing way. The dynamic between him and his sister was interesting. Overall, I felt she treated the issue of autism much better than other fiction books I've read.
