I think that this was, unfortunately, my least favorate Jodi Picoult book. I was able to get through it really quickly, so I was really into it and enjoying it. But there were two big reasons that I was not a big fan:
1) I don't know and I didn't know all that much about Asperger's, so I appreciated the background information on it and the description of symptoms, etc. However, I think it was overkill on the amount of information that I was provided. It felt like every 4 or 5 pages was a description of "this is how Asperger's syndrome is." There were parts of this book where I felt like I was reading a lecture.
2) I HATED the ending. It completely left you hanging. From the last chapter, I was able to gather what might have happened or what Picoult is trying to say could have happened, but that is completely unbelievable. I literally had this awful look on my face when I finished reading it.
Unfortunately, I was hugely disappointed.
