I’m always impressed when an author can get inside someone’s head and give a little bit of their point of view. While this isn’t ever completely possible to do, I think the author does a decent job of it here.
It’s an interesting story, though at times it seems a bit too simply-written when the story doesn’t require it (like when two adults are conversing). But I think that’s so younger minds can absorb it. And maybe it’s part of the narrative, too.
Interesting that it’s written around the finding of the blue bottle – where all of the story has something to do with the bottle; yet none of it really does.
Of course, the main point is to tell the story from the POV of someone with Aspergers; and for that, I recommend it.
Thanks to NetGalley and Jessica Kingsley Publishers for a copy in return for an honest review.
