    This was Picoult's best so far and I have read them all! I loved all the information about Asperger's and the characters were very real. I felt as if I was part of the family. I liked the way it was a murder mystery and not quite as heartrending as some of her other books like My Sister's Keeper and Handle With Care. I could not stop listening even though I figured out whodunit before the end. I loved the courtroom drama. The narrator were excellent.

    Very well written and also well read! I would love to see this story turned into a movie! I found it very insightful into the difficulties one might face when a family member is on the autism spectrum.

    This was a great book that kept me wanting to read more! I actually preferred to listen to the book as opposed to read the hard copy because the narration was so good! I love the suspense that this book provided. Although, I was kind of disappointed at the end. I finished feeling like I needed more information. Overall good read and great narration!
