Winner of the 2010 National Book Award! Struggling with basic situations, 5th grader, Caitlin has Asperger’s Syndrome. Her older brother, Devon, who was her close friend, has recently died in a horrific school shooting. Neither Caitlin nor her dad have a clue as to how to reach the CLOSURE everyone sees as important, until Devon’s unfinished Eagle Scott project diverts their grief. “To Kill a Mockingbird” was Caitlin and Devon’s favorite movie. Devon saw himself as Jem and Caitlin as Scout, but Devon became the Mockingbird, an innocent being who would harm no one.
