Summary, etc.:
"Despite his overwhelming fear of interacting with people, Christopher, a mathematically gifted, autistic fifteen-year-old boy, decides to investigate the murder of a neighbor's dog and uncovers secret information about his mother. Unable to feel emotions himself, his story evokes emotions in readers -- heartache and frustration for his well-meaning but clueless parents and deep empathy for the wonderfully honest, funny, and loveable protagonist. Readers will never view the behavior of an autistic person again without more compassion and understanding." SLJ.
