Description: Written in the first person of Caitlin, a 10 year old girl on the spectrum who is trying to deal with the shooting death of her brother. Being left emotionally to deal with her grief as her parents struggle with their own, she is faced with the added difficulties often faced by people with ASD. With the help of a new friend and a special school counsellor Caitlin is finally able to understand empathy – and after she “gets” compassion, so do many others around her.
