The Curioius Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon, is about a teenage boy named Christopher Boone. Christopher was born with Asperger's Syndrome (Asperger's Syndrome is a disorder on the Autism spectrum). He was trying to figure out who murdered his neighbor's dog, Wellington. He eventually found out who murdered the dog, and not just that, he discovered many other things too. I think this is a very interesting and mysterious book. It's mysterious because it makes you want to find out what is going to happen next. It is also interesting because it teaches you a lot about people with Asperger's Syndrome. It teaches you about all the difficulties people with Autism have. I recommend this book to teenagers and anybody who likes to read.
