    "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is one of the best novels featuring someone with special needs directed at a young adult audience. The main character is a young boy that struggles with autism and sometimes the problems that come with the it. It's a tough story to read but one with a lesson that we all can learn from."

    "This book doesn't really play on a new idea, but it is nice to see some modern post-apocalyptic fiction that isn't due to man made causes. It was also interesting to have an autistic protagonist who is really strong. This book had a lot of diversity in the characters without trying too hard to be diverse. I like that it was realistic in showing different types of people come together to survive in a post-apocalyptic world."

    "I bought Fish in a Tree since I was interested in reading about the special relationship the kid (who has dyslexia) formed with people around her. The book turned out to be very disappointing and the author barely even explores the kid's relationships."
