Don't waste your time on this one. The author tried to deal with too many topics. It's as though she wrote it specifically to be picked up by book clubs and tried to throw in every gimmick she could think of. The result is a mishmash that struck me as maudlin and overwrought. The character with Asperger's, Matt, was the only saving grace, but not enough for me to recommend slogging through the book just for that character.
