The right book in the right hands at the right time.

This was not at all what I was expecting based on the title—the anger is understated, simmering, and more than anything about being misunderstood and longing for connection.  It REALLY seems that the main character’s brother is on the ASD spectrum, but this is never discussed, so I only have my own experience to go by.  This is a character study rather than about action, but it is an interesting look at two brothers.  **
