Review: mockingbird

mockingbird by Kathryn Erskin

I don't know what goes on in the mind of a child with Asperger Syndrom, but this book certainly made me think about it a lot. It's the story of Caitlin, who has Asperger's and is dealing with the loss of her brother, Devon, who watched out for her and helped her deal with the world around her. It is a very touching book, but really makes you think as well. I loved the way her mind worked, and couldn't put this book down, mostly because I wanted to see what Caitlin would do or say next. Highly recommended for the empathy it draws out of the reader. This review is based on a library copy.

Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
