    I enjoyed it, though I did feel the portrayal of Asperger's was over-the-top at times. I've seen this book criticized because it portrayed empathy as something Caitlin needed to learn, rather than something she already had but had trouble expressing. I thought that was a good point. It's a good read, but not a perfect representation of Asperger's.

    I love this book even if it isn't always accurate. Although every aspie different so who i'm to judge.

    It made me happy to see my NT friend reading about aspies.

    This book has nothing on Thr Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night Time.
