Written in the narrative of an Autistic 15yr old's voice...this very well may have been the oddest, uniquely written book i've read. It was not at all what i expected. It was a VERY quick read, i read it in less than a day. I would have to say that the premise of the book was not really the main idea, here. It was an interesting story of the murder of a dog, and the mystery of the boy's mother...but all-in-all i think it was a very "curiously" written character study of the boy's perception of the world and how he survives in it. I am NOT very familiar with Autism, however, but this book lent me a sensitive insight to what the boy endures and achieves in everyday life and this is truly where the story lies. A VERY INTERESTING AND RECOMMENDED READ! YOU'LL NEVER READ A BOOK LIKE THIS, I BET!
