Georgia Carrino Hello everybody
I read this book a few weeks ago and I think Chris' dialogue is very interesting.

First of all, he doesn't talk much, because it's extremely difficult for him. But when he does, it reveals his character. It shows how he is really smart but nobody knows it. Also, what he doesn't say reveals his character. He drops hints that nobody else knows because they can't understand him.

Additionally, he has a very patient tone. When people talk to him with pity, or like they think he is stupid, he doesn't freak out because he knows they'll just think less of him. I think his patient tone reveals his character.

What do you think? Please don't spoil the book for anyone else.

Scott Made explicit when his brother tells someone (I forget who) that he "isn't retarded," only physically disabled.
