I really liked this book because it tells a very good story on a boy that has Autism. His sister has to watch over him and doesn’t always have a normal life. Also I really like that Catherine helps Jason a lot throughout the book with his communication. I also enjoyed learning about different types of Autism. I don’t really have any negative statements about the book.

very good messages and lessons to learn for young kids.
It is a very good book. This book was interesting and had an easy messing to send. I think a 12 year old would be a little board. 8+ would really enjoy this book. I did enjoy this book much. It is a very good book to teach young kids how every one is different and that is okay to have a friend in a wheel chair.
I thought it taught me a lot of things about people that are different than me and that I should treat them like any other person. It’s not an action book but it does have a good message and it keeps you hooked.
I think this book is very educational! I loved this book and for me it's just a new experience. I loved in this book that it teaches you that if you don't always have to have a friend that is able to walk or run, or even a friend that can't speak or hear.
like Catherin she has a friend named Jason that you'll learn about in this book he cant walk or speak but she also has a friend that can walk and speak but at the end of the book this girl get's upset that Catherin has a friend that can't walk or run. I would tell you more but i would give the whole story away and I don't want to do that.

Great book Loved it and i can relate to it too!
My little brother has autism and i can really relate to how Catherine feels i am also twelve and after i read this book i cried because half the stuff Catherine said to David i said to my little brother billy it is the moments in books like this that people can relate to if any of you girls out there with a disabled brother or sister just know they cant help it after a few years things will get better never yell or call them stupid disabled or no they have feelings dont let anyone push them around either let them know they are smart even if its not true :)
This story gives off a good message and all but I personaly don't like the author's style of writing. The writing is like, "I walk to the couch" and it's not past tense. There isn't really any big events in this book either. She just means this guy and makes him drawings. THAT'S IT. It makes it NOT interesting.Some people may not agree with me, but that's my opinion with some facts in it. (if that even makes sense.) overall, 8 out of 10. -...-
