Natalie has a knack for capturing the angst and voice of teenagers. This story features alternating narratives of four high school students during the course of one life-changing day. The most captivating voice is Henry who manages his autism along with the noise and closeness of his high school campus. As a licensed speech pathologist, Natalie capably takes us inside Henry's world. We feel his confusion and discomfort as students hurl insults and mixed messages his way. In the final chapters, Henry and the three other narrators' worlds collide inside a tension-filled cafeteria. Their lives will never be the same again. A must read.
