'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' by Mark Haddon

"My dad and I actually listened to this book on CD while driving back from a Florida vacation. It made the trip go by so quickly!

"This book is told from the perspective of [an autistic teenage] boy who is writing a book himself, in order to solve a mystery about the death of a neighbor's dog. Along the way he learns about himself, his family and the world around him. The book is a delight — funny, sad and thought-provoking as the reader sees the world through the boy's unusual and unexpected point-of-view."
