Publisher's Summary

National Book Award, Young People's Literature, 2010

In Mockingbird—a poignant gem by acclaimed author Kathryn Erskine—a talented young artist struggles to overcome a disability. Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, 10-year-old Caitlin faces a range of social and emotional challenges. The unexpected death of her caring brother makes matters even worse, but will the memory of his words of wisdom and the help of a compassionate counselor be enough to enable her to connect with others?

    "Wonderful story of Healing"

    When I started reading this book, I had no idea it would take me on this wonderful trip into the mind of a girl like Caitlin. Born with Asperger's Syndrome, she is a high functioning, highly intelligient girl who develops her social skills and emotional perceptiveness throughout the book. Her drive is amazing and by the end of the journey, this spit-fire of a youngster with lots of confidence not only helps bring healing to her family, but to an entire community. I loved this book. Thanks, Ms. Erskine.

    "Excellent book for ALL readers"

    But especially parents of special needs kids. 2012 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. Wonderful book written in the first person by an Asperger’s girl whose older brother was killed in a shooting spree at the middle school. Caitlin is a hilarious character, finely drawn and oh so accurate. This is a laugh out loud story for any SNK parent/sibling/friend. It’s wonderful. Caitlin is wonderful, and so was Devon.

    Story
    "Very touching and inspirational"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this wonderful story of a young girl with Asperger's who learns how to feel and what's important in the world. Insights for all of us to read and remember.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrative is skillfully crafted and leads us along with the main character, Caitlyn, on a journey of self-discovery.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Jayne Rogers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Rogers' performances before this, but I felt she captured the young character perfectly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The last few chapters of the book brought tears to my eyes.

    "Well read, but this did not keep my interest"

    The voice of a young girl with Asperger's Syndrome rings a bit false to me. I have read a number of these types of things and I was surprised this won the National Book Award considering it was a bit plodding and predictable. The narration was excellent, but that did not save the book for me.

    "I'm in love with this book!"

    This story not only deals with sorrow and sadness brought on by tragedy, but how a child with autism might think about sick trauma.

    Don't miss this one. Fantastic story with strong themes. Empathy, finesse, and closure; ideas we can. All relate to. It's also really funny as well.

    "Mockingbird"

    The plot was good, but the writing made it boring. There was nothing wrong with the performance.
