    I love reading books from the perspective of others. This one is perfect as it's told by 14year old Hudson who has Aspergers, so a lot of things are seen slightly differently. HIs mum is expecting a baby, a zygote, with her new partner and a lot of the book is Hudson talking to his new sibling. HIs grandad has just died so there's a funeral to get through and obviously his dad is grieving. A lot for anyone to deal with but he does.

    Overview: Main character Hudson has Asperger's Syndrome. Today is the day of his Grandad's funeral, and he talks about his thoughts and events leading up to the funeral. What I Liked: This book is aimed at older children/teens who find reading difficult, and the style of writing caters to them well. The narration doesn’t needlessly go off-track nor are there too many distractions from the main happenings, the format is clear and easy to read (the font itself is quite big), and there are illustrations to aid understanding. Hudson’s narration is engaging, and his family’s back story is relatable to most readers. What I Didn't Like: Nothing! My Overall Thoughts: This is a very quick and easy read (I finished it in a couple hours) that caters well to its intended audience. I would recommend this as an educational tool for those working with children that find reading a challenge.
