Patrick the born detective... sort of

Rubbernecker - Belinda Bauer

Interesting story telling about Patrick, a young person with Asperger's syndrome.

He is a loner who lost his father when he was young in a car accident. And his mother is a drunk and dislike him because of his disability.

 

Patrick like to study death because he didn't understand how his father had died, right in front of him.

 

Poor kid handled things the way that make sense to him. He is good in his own way without realising that other people don't like him because he didn't do what is expected of him in common social interactions.

 

Most interaction is shallow anyway and it just take too much energy.

The story started slow and it picked up quickly. Very enjoyable.
