Catherine has a problem that she is trying to control.   She has a younger brother who has autism and is trying to make up rules for him so he won't embarrass her in public.  On the other hand, she is quick to defend him when people are unkind.

A new girl, who is Catherine's age, moves in next door and Catherine desparately wants her as a friend.  At the same time, she becomes friends with another challenged young man and must deal with her feelings of liking him and being embarrassed by him. 

So how will Catherine handle these 2 situations?  Both similiar but dealing with the same issue.

This book really touches on the uncomfortable feelings anyone has, grown up or kid, when coming into contact with a mentally challenged person.  I can see where it won an award.  It really deserved it.
