Mockingbird

Mockingbird - Kathryn Erskine I received this book from Around The World Tours and forgot about it. Then Cindy asked me if I had sent it and I was not sure what she meant, then I looked around and there it was sitting on the table. I told her I would send it promptly the next morning. I then picked up the book to try and read it before the next morning thinking it was going to be a struggle. I completely fell into this book. Caitlin's child-like innocence was increased by her battle with Asperger's so when her brother dies she has no real idea what is going on.Kathryn created a story that touches so many different emotions. I felt genuinely sad for Caitlin and her father's loss and Caitlin's need to make her father feel better and have "closure". This book deals with more than Asperger's it deals with something we all inherently feel whether we admit it or not.So poignant and touching! It made me cry.
