Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved this little book! What an unexpected surprise.
Mockingbird is told in the voice of Caitlin, a young girl with Aspergers, moving on with life after her brother is killed in a middle school shooting. She is working to understand her father's feelings, being accepted at school, and living life without her older brother. I enjoyed seeing the world through her eyes, and often found myself completely understanding her point of view. Like the book says, we all fall somewhere on the autistic spectrum. I may be a little closer to Caitlin than other people, and that's ok.
If you like getting inside a character's head who might cause you to view the world a little differently, it's definitely worth the read. So good!
