I have just started reading this book and am looking forward to it. This is a book I have wanted to read for a long time and am finally getting to it!!!

A wonderful book about humanity and the human spirit in it's many forms. Charlie's journey is both exciting, insightful, sad, and bittersweet as he tries to navigate his intellectual and emotional changes as well as the new relationships he forms and the "ghosts" of the relationships he needs to face from his past.

It is a story that reminds us that everyone is person a first and foremost regardless of their abilities and/or disabilities. How we treat people is an important aspect of who we are and how we treat those in the world around us.

A wonderful novel with a great story and cast of characters.
