Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

I learned about this book from my school. Right now they’re having this “One Book One School” event where if you read the book and take a test on it, you get to go to this pizza party. So, when I was walking around the public library, I saw it and decided to get it. It was a good choice.

I’ve never read anything like this, where the author portays a child with Aspergers and talks about how they feel and think from first person. I thought it was really inspiring. When you pair this with the school shootings epidemic that’s been going on lately, this story can really evoke a lot of emotion and tears. I know it did for me.

Mockingbird is about a girl named Caitlin, who has Aspergers. Her brother is killed in a school shooting that sets her and especially her father into a kind of confusion and depression, except Caitlin doesn’t understand alot of her father’s actions and emotions. With the help of her teacher, Mrs. Brook, Caitlin learns about herself and other people when they deal with certain situations.

(P.S.! Thank you guys for all the likes and views yesterday. It was my “Most Liked Day”!)
