really liked it
Read in June, 2011

I was fascinated by the reaction of the main character, Dr. Thea Sperelakis, to life with Asperger's Syndrome. She comes from a family of brilliant doctors, particularly her father, but she is, perhaps the most brilliant of all of them. Having been working with Doctors Without Borders in Africa, which has been a very comfortable way of life for her, she is called home to Boston when her father is injured by a hit-and-run driver and is close to death. The situation soon becomes much more complicated than a hit-and-run and Thea finds herself trying to solve a mystery, with the help of her father, who can only communicate through eye movement, of which he insists that no one but Thea is to be aware. Quite an intriguing story and one that keeps you on the edge of your seat, particularly toward the end of the book.
