Have you read a good book lately?

Here's one for you!  It's called The Curious Incident in the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

What is the book about?

Christopher Boone discovers that Wellington, his neighbor's dog, has been killed with a garden fork (some folks call it a pitchfork).  When the police come, they suspect that Christopher has killed Wellington and want to take him in, but Christopher reacts to them in strange and unexpected ways.  They do not discover until later that Christopher has autism.

Christopher loves math, science, and animals.  Because he cares about Wellington, he sets off to learn who the murderer is.  In his journeys, he finds the answers to his questions but finds out more than he bargained for as well. 

Get ready to go along with Christopher as he investigates the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
