What I really liked about this books was seeing the inner thoughts of Caitlin. I'm not familiar with Asperger's, but regardless of which, I felt the inner dialogue was honest and true. I liked how any spoken word was in italics as if that's how she relates to people when they speak to her.
Most of all I loved the title capped words. The phrases that adults would say to her to help her understand how people and/or life work: Look At The Person, Your Manners, Get It, The Day Our Life Fell Apart, etc. To her, these were things she needed work on, the things she needed to remember.
Erskine has herself here a character readers can relate to. After all, we all have things we need to work on or things we can't seem to get. And in the case of kids, things adults say they just recite until they truly understand it.
