Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine is a novel about Caitlin, a little 5th grade girl with Asperges syndrome. Now she has to deal with her brother getting shot in a school killing. How she and her dad handle it is the basis of this book. I really enjoyed Caitlin very much. You can read it in one or two days. It is worth your time. This book has been nominated for book of the year in the young people’s category. Well deserved! I LOVED IT!!
