This is a story about a boy who has autism who becomes a great writer to escape from the challenges of being "different". It also talks about his life before he was diagnosed and how he was extra smart. I liked this book because it is a simple book to read, but when you think more deeply about it, you discover a whole new view of his life. It made me feel bad for him because of his lack of friends. I liked this book more than others because it shows all of his struggles because he was different. I think it has a pretty good chance of winning this years Newbery!
(Yes, I did read the whole book since my last post!)
