is a book written in 2010 by Kathryn Erskine.
Caitlin Ann Smith has Asperger's Syndrome
(and she claims that she's not autistic
). She hates colors with the reason that they "run into each other", she is very picky with the clothes she wears, loves drawing, sees a counselor at school, and is friendless. Her only true friend is her older brother, Devon, who helps her out with whatever confuses her. Unfortunately, he dies in a school shooting along with two other people, leaving her and her father grief stricken. Caitlin doesn't like what his death brings, and life becomes even more confusing and complicated. With Devon no longer there to help her and her dad doing nothing but sit around and cry all the time, she decides she has to find something called closure.
But she doesn't know what closure is and how to find it.
This is not to be confused with the comic book Mockingbird
