really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, relationships, teens
Read in April, 2011

If you go on Amazon.com, this book did not score very well at all. But, if there was a Gerard.com, this book would get high marks! I enjoyed it a lot! The story is based on Max, a young teen boy who is Autistic and smart. When he gets checked into a special care facility, he is accused of murdering a fellow patient. Max’s mother does everything in her power to clear her son. This book drags somewhat, but the hearing in front of the judge which is Part 3, more than makes up for it. It is SO GOOD! Especially when the mother, who is an attorney, takes over to defend her son. Fantastic! Put this on your to read list--you can thank me later.

Andrea I read this a while ago and did a review on it. I loved this book, I am glad to see someone else has loved it, as well! It was a great mystery, the way it unraveled and left you hanging. The story of the mother, Max, so much more than just motherly love! Great stuff!
