The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

I am currently reading this book and it is awesome!  The book is from the point of view of a  teenage autistic boy named Christopher who is trying to figure out who killed his neighbors dog.  The book is smart, clever and I can’t put it down.  This is my favorite quote from Christopher:

“All of the other children at my school are stupid.  Except I’m not meant to call them stupid, even though that is what they are.  I’m meant to say that they have special needs.  But this is stupid because everyone has learning difficulties because learning to speak French or understanding relativity is difficult and also everyone has special needs, like Father, who has to carry a little packet of artificial sweetening tablets around with him to put in his coffee to stop him from getting fat, or Mrs. Peters who wears a beige-colored hearing aid, or Siobhan who has glasses so thick they give you a headache if you borrow them, and none of these people are Special Needs, even though they have special needs.”

 

Oh, and the book has drawings by Christopher of things he wants to tell you about :)
