About this item

In Caitlin's world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. That's the stuff Caitlin's older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon's dead and Dad is no help at all. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with Asperger's, she doesn't know how. When she reads the definition of closure, she realizes that is what she needs. In her search for it, Caitlin discovers that not everything is black and white -- the world is full of colors -- messy and beautiful. Kathryn Erskine has written a must-read gem, one of the most moving novels of the year.

About the Author

Kathryn Erskine

I grew up in Europe, Africa, Canada, and the United States, and was a lawyer before I figured out what I really wanted to be when I grew up--a writer! I take my inspiration from the world around me and from my personal experiences, including my childhood attending 8 different schools.

I travel a fair amount, give speeches, visit schools, etc. and try keep up my blog and website in between. Writing time is precious -- I'm currently working on a several middle grade and young adult novels, as well as picture books and an adult novel. My latest is THE BADGER KNIGHT, a novel of adventure -- I hope you enjoy it!
