it was amazing
bookshelves: children, favorites

This book truly makes you think twice about mental illness. I don't know how accurately the author was able to emulate the thoughts of an autistic boy, especially since I haven't spent any time with someone who is autistic, but I feel like this book can help people understand the illness a little better and realize what they can bring to the world.

The book was well-written and cleverly put together. I enjoyed the diagrams and all the educational facts the character Christopher taught the audience.

Although Christopher was the one with the mental illness he always seemed the most practical and made the most sense. Everyone else had severe character flaws and I think that is a main strength to the book. Christopher may be right that maybe all the people like him will be the ones to survive evolution.

An important and great read!
