Mary Ann’s August Recommendation

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

“Narrated by an autistic 10 year old girl whose brother was killed in a school shooting.  We get insights into the thinking of an autistic child—how she reacts to school experiences and how the tragedy affects her family.   Readers  will enjoy  how Caitlin employs  the adaptive strategies taught by her teachers and school therapists.

As fascinating an autistic narrator as the older Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.”

Read about it or request it from the library catalog.
