The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime by Mark Haddon
Recommendation: I would strongly suggest this book because its told from a unique perspective. Christopher Boone has a mental disorder and he is seen as an underdog of sorts. I like a story that shows the rise of success in an underdog type of character. I would also recommend this novel because it is a Broadway play. I enjoy reading books that can be backed up with a movie, TV series, or play.
about Haddon: He wrote many children's books and this work was one of this only adult novels. Haddon wrote one book series and it was geared to a very young adult crowd. He won the Whitbread Award and Guardian Prize due to this novel.

The 15-year-old protagonist of the novel, who investigates the murder of Mrs. Shears' large black poodle. He is a static character. He overcomes his mental obstacles by traveling across England to find his mother. He is creative and very intelligent, just not very socially understanding.
