Why Choose This Book?

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

by Mark Haddon

" Despite his overwhelming fear of interacting with people, Christopher, a mathematically-gifted, autistic [note: his particular neuro-divergence is never specifically defined in the book] fifteen-year-old boy, decides to investigate the murder of a neighbor's dog and uncovers secret information about his mother." -- NoveList

"Though Christopher insists, "This will not be a funny book. I cannot tell jokes because I do not understand them," the novel brims with touching, ironic humor. The result is an eye-opening work in a unique and compelling literary voice.  "
