I was recommended this read by my GCSE maths teacher a few years ago. He spent a while telling the class about it and he really sold it to me.
When I came to read the book I was not disappointed. I never knew much about Autism, or Aspergers. This book is a complete eye-opener; narrated from the point of view of the young boy who is the sufferer it paints a clear picture of what exactly Aspergers is, and is very easy to digest.
It is one of those books that you cannot put down and simultaneously do not want to finish. Once I had finished it, I couldn't start another for a while, I just wanted to keep its taste in my mouth a little bit longer!
A very insightful, vicarious read.
