Description

Christopher is 15 and lives in Swindon with his father. He has Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. He is obsessed with maths, science and Sherlock Holmes but finds it hard to understand other people. When he discovers a dead dog on a neighbour's lawn he decides to solve the mystery and write a detective thriller about it. As in all good detective stories, however, the more he unearths, the deeper the mystery gets - for both Christopher and the rest of his family.

Reviews

"* 'Haddon's book is a peculiar thing - a kind of James Joyce for kids - but a genre-busting gem, nevertheless' - The Observer * 'Engaging, warm, humorous and poignant at the same time' - The Scotsman * 'This book is amazing... A must read' - Martina Evans, Irish Post * 'Mark Haddon's portrayal of an emotionally dissociated mind is a superb achievement. He is a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy' Ian McEwan"
