Mockingbird

MockingbirdMockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Another book that is a bit predictable, partially because it’s a YA title, but it deals with its rather mature topics rather well even with the flaws. Death and autism/Asperger’s are going to be tough topics to tackle in and of themselves, but put them together and it’s really hard. It seemed to me that the author kind of compressed the timeline and forced some of the characters to get to their resolutions more quickly than they might in "real life," and that bugged me a bit. Still, I would recommend it for the category, as it does well in addressing the topics it tackles.
