When I'm looking for a new book, I like to try and find a story told in a unique voice, and this book is my absolute favorite.
This mystery is written from the perspective of Christopher, a fifteen year old boy who is on the autism spectrum. He narrates (with a ton of detail) his experiences while he steps far out of his comfort zone to figure out what the adults in his life aren't telling him. Christopher tells his story in such a unique and interesting way, I think it's impossible to not love him by the end of the novel. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a story from a completely new perspective. I also recommend it to you in specific. If you don't like it, that's on me, bit I'm pretty confident you will.
