Annotation Author Kathryn Erskine compassionately tackles a complex trifecta of issues here, including Asperger Syndrome, grief, and school shootings. Eleven-year-old Caitlin has a special bond with her older brother, Devon, who compares Caitlin and her father to Scout and Atticus in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. He helps her comprehend the world through the complicated lens of her Asperger's. When Devon tragically dies in a school shooting, Caitlin's world shrinks, and she struggles to understand what is going on. Her widowed father isn't much help, and although close, the two have a hard time with the rest of the world. But with the guidance of a kind counselor at school, and her own desire to get closure, Caitlin carefully works her way through life, discovering strength, courage, and friendship along the way. A 2010 National Book Award winner in the Young People's Literature category.
Editors Note Caitlin has Asperger's. The world according to her is black and white; anything in between is confusing. Before, when things got confusing, Caitlin went to her older brother, Devon, for help. But Devon has died, and Caitlin's dad is so distraught that he is just not helpful. Caitlin wants everything to go back to the way things were, but she doesnÕt know how to do that. Then she comes across the word closureÑ and she realizes this is what she needs. And in her search for it, Caitlin discovers that the world may not be black and white after all.
