did not like it
bookshelves: first-reads
Read in April, 2012

I won this book in a First Reads giveaway, and I was excited to read it; otherwise I wouldn't have thrown my hat in in the first place. The idea intrigued me.
But I can't say I liked it. In fact, I have to say that I really, really didn't like it. The first thing that turned me off was that the author calls autistic kids "retards." I don't care that it was a fictional character saying it, it is an inexcusable word to describe any child. I was horribly offended. And then the language in the book was awful.
Call me closed-minded. Call me conservative. But I would rather avoid the base things in life. And the depressing. This book was both.
