#awallofbooks It is a novel written in 2003 in the first-person of a fifteen-year-old boy with autistic spectrum condition. It is lovely and absolutely amazing how he explains his fears and difficulties when interpreting the world around him. He describes that for him it is really difficult to mingle with others, so he prefers to mingle with maths or animals. I highly recommend this book for teachers and children who live with young people with these problems. By Vicky. EOI Luarca.
North and South, by Elizabeth Gaskell (March 7, 2013) Nothing to do with the American civil war, by the way. This is an English novel originally written for Charles Dickens' magazine, "Household Words." It has something of Dickens' social conscious but a love story reminiscent of "Pride and Prejudice."
