it was amazing

This is a stunning debut--part love story, part The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (with an outer space twist). It is an intense, compelling story about what it means to be human and about what it means to be different. When Sunny's wig went flying into a muddy puddle, I cheered; when the people at NASA embraced Bubber's meltdown, I cried. I love the idea that autistic people can have happy endings, too, and Nobel-prize winning Maxon was my favorite character. I loved seeing his brain work, which is pretty impressive, since I'm totally math phobic. Quirky characters, unique voice, stellar writing...this novel has it all.
