bookshelves: teen-fiction

Another aspie/autistic hero. Marcelo's voice rings true throughout this book. While he has some gaps in social understanding, the people around him -- including his father -- consistently overestimate his "naivety". He has more guts and more awareness than many of us as he navigates the challenge set by his father to take a summer job in the law firm where his dad is a partner. A lovely book.
