Strathmere Favorites:
Jessica Weaver recommends: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Christopher John Francis Boone is the protagonist. He knows all the countries of the world and every prime number up to 7057. He is also autistic. Mark Haddon takes you inside the bewildering mind of this 15 year old boy who can solve complex mathematical equations but can’t read the expressions on peoples’ faces. This is a murder mystery, a treatise on reality, an examination of family bonds, and a story of failure, triumph, and love all rolled into one. A totally engaging read. (Chosen as the adult selection for One Book New Jersey 2010; for more information see )
