Middle-child Clare is always helpful at home, especially with her brother, who is "seriously weird." Troy is brilliant at numbers, but the rest of his life is difficult, a constant problem and embarrassment for his family. Narrator Lisa Coleman skillfully presents the family members and many frustrated neighbors, teachers, and even police who must cope with Troy. Particularly well rendered is Clare, who has her own life and friends but never forgets Troy and his need for understanding. Despite its unrealistic ending, this is an excellent title to teach children about tolerance for kids different from themselves. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
