As the mother of an adult child with Aspergers, this book was a little too close to home. Hard to read at times, but true to the issues involved with the syndrome. I, also, figured out the ending before it came; not usual for me with Piccoult books, but all in all, this was an excellent book. I am having my other three children read it-the first one who finished it said he identified strongly with the brother and could really relate. Piccoult certainly did her research-her main character had the myriad of characteristics found with Aspergers---in real life, it's just not usually all wrapped up in one person! I so enjoy how she tells the story from the characters' different perspectives and how the issues are not black and white, but very grey---so much like real life. A great book.
