I read this book again once I found out it was the OTSP selection. It is very moving and well written account from the point of view of someone with Asperger's Syndrome. I have a relative with this disorder and could really relate to the boy's and parent's feeling or lack of feelings in the case of Christopher. What a great way to make people aware of this disorder and how it affects us all.
Even though this book is written from the point of view of a character who doesn't understand ordinary emotional interaction, it's a very emotionally involving novel. You can't help being caught up in Christopher's painful quest to understand what happened to his neighbor's dog-and what happened to his own family. Don't miss this book!
I read this book last year for my book club and I thought it was well-written and very interesting. I am going to read it again!
