Mockingbird

Hardcover

Author: Erskine, Kathryn
ISBN: 9780399252648 Publisher: Philomel

In CaitlinÕs world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. ThatÕs the stuff CaitlinÕs older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now DevonÕs dead and Dad is no help at all. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with AspergerÕs, she doesnÕt 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 whiteÑthe world is full of colorsÑmessy and beautiful.

Kathryn Erskine has written a must-read gem, one of the most moving novels of the year.
