Book #28: 50 Book Challenge 2012

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime - Mark Haddon

This was about an autistic boy who tries to solve a mystery in his neighborhood, but I think the real theme was how a couple raises a child with autism.  This couple was pretty bad, but I had the feeling at the end that things might get better for the boy.

I really liked this book and I like how the author explored cognitive skills and problem solving through the eyes of an autistic person.
