April's Paperback Pick

I've been wanting to read Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine for a long time because the main character, Caitlin, has Asperger's. So when I was scanning my shelves for the next paperback pick, this one practically called my name!

It was a good quick read packed with emotions. (I cried a lot.) It was so interesting to get a look inside the mind of Caitlin and see how she dealt with the events happening around her. It's a book worth checking out.

Here's more about it:
In Caitlin’s world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. That’s the stuff Caitlin’s older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon’s dead and Dad is no help at all. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with Asperger’s, she doesn’t know how. When she reads the definition of closure, she realizes that is what she needs. In her search for it, Caitlin discovers that not everything is black and white—the world is full of colors—messy and beautiful.Kathryn Erskine has written a must-read gem, one of the most moving novels of the year.
