Cait K (medlibcait) | 99 comments At one point, Don says about one of the father candidates, "Apparently he had been an oncologist but had not detected the cancer in himself, a not-uncommon scenario. Humans often fail to see what is close to them and obvious to others" (82). How does this statement, about people failing to see what is in front of them, apply to the different characters in the novel? (From Erin Collazo Miller)

Elizabeth Bilyk | 12 comments it's funny how Don researches and gives a presentation on Aspergers and doesn't seem to identify himself as having Aspergers although he does understand and have insights about the kids in his audience.

Cait K (medlibcait) | 99 comments Yes, he clearly did a lot of research and also connected with the kids, and then Claudia even asks afterwards if the symptoms reminded him of anyone, and he diagnoses another professor but never thinks of himself!
