thought Cailtin was a great character and I thoroughly enjoyed getting inside her head. It was wonderful to see the story from her perspective and examine how she saw the world. I struggled with the plot because I didn't feel like there was one. I recognize Caitlin's growth in finding Closure and friends and reconciling with her father. But it was slow at points and hard to sink my teeth into. It could be because of the target audience again. I don't know.
What I do know is that I enjoyed Caitlin's examination of the world and of herself. Mrs. Brooks was one of the best characters in the whole thing. I feel like the message of the author, about school shootings, violence and neurodiversity was sometimes a little too distracting, despite it's importance. Caitlin saved the story, or lack there of, for me.
