This book was about Colin Fischer, a fourteen year old boy with Asperger’s. Because of this he was very intelligent. He doesn’t like loud noises, the color blue, being touched, or when someone moves things in his room. He isn’t that good at telling if someone is joking about something or not. He loves mysteries and solving them. His idol is Sherlock Holmes. He has a notebook he has written in since preschool.
One day at school someone fires a gun in the cafeteria. Colin is on the case. He gets into more trouble trying to solve this than he has in his whole life.
I loved this book! It was so interesting that I read the whole without stopping except for when I had a snack break.
