In her debut novel, Hill, an instructor at North Shore Community College in Massachusetts, does a fine job of describing Eddie's rapt obsessions and how others often fail to understand the autistic child's point of view. In one scene, for example, Eddie, disengaged from a raucous Easter-egg hunt, gazes at a bit of candy wrapping and studies "the light and dark creases in the silver foil. The depth of the shadows, the reflected light at little peaks. It made him think of weather." - Kirkus reviews
