This book appealed to me on the genius aspect. I wanted to see how Roy crafted a boy with Asperger's who struggles to define his genius aptitude while trying to lead a normal life.

I thought that Roy did a great job getting in Nathaniel's emotions and thoughts. I was interested in how he defined genius and how he fit into this concept. I was also interested in Nathaniel's and his father's relationship. What lost my interest was his interaction with his peers. I thought that it was your traditional plot of "awkward (as defined by not fitting into normal standards of society)" boy falls in love with girl, boy gets girl.
