A heart-warming story of loss and recovery that won the American National Book Award 2010 - one of the most moving books you'll ever read.

Since Caitlin's brother died, she has no one to explain the world to her. It's a confusing place, full of emotions and colours she can't understand. So when Caitlin reads the definition of "closure" in the dictionary, she decides that's what she needs. And as she struggles to find it, she lets a world of colour into her black-and-white life.

A bittersweet story about hurt and healing, told in the unforgettable voice of a young girls with Asperger's syndrome.

As a resident of Virginia, Kathryn Erskine was devastated by the 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech. In the aftermath of this tragedy, Kathryn was driven to understand how community and family – particularly families with special-needs children – dealt with this violent event, and how our lives might be different if we understood each other better. In writing Mockingbird and telling the story of Caitlin, a young girl with Asperger's syndrome, she walked into the fragile world herself, and like Caitlin, offers us something “good and strong and beautiful”. Kathryn was a lawyer for fifteen years before turning to her first love: writing. She lives in Virginia, USA, with her husband, two children, and her dog, Maxine. Author location: Virginia, USA
