"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost"

Mockingbird - Kathryn Erskine I was interested in this book after I read that the girl had Asperger's Syndrome. While Caitlin's syndrome is severe, I can understand how reading people and fitting in are two things I have never been successful in. The story goes deeper into linking someone who does not understand emotions and finding emotional closure. This book is touching and well written. The plot is solid, and seeing the world through Caitin's eyes makes this tragic story take on a whole new light. Caitlin extends past her condition and starts the healing process for a community in need of emotional guidance. Erskine wrote a book that is basically "good and strong and beautiful."
