Christopher Boone is a fifteen-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome. He is very specific in his needs, does not like being touched by anyone, and cannot handle his emotions. He functions on a logical basis rather than an emotional basis, which can lead to severe consequences for both him and the adults in his life. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a heart-warming yet controversial book about a teenager who is different from most people around him. How Christopher deals with his disability, the troubles his family faces, and his environment form the core of the story.
Author Mark Haddon won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award, the Commonwealth Writers Prize, and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
