Nice! This was a good read. I really enjoyed Marcelo's summer in the real world, his growth and learning. It was a bit sad to have him learn the meaner sides of human behavior.
Marcelo's story is warm, heartening, funny, sad. His look at the world is honest, simple, plain and straightforward.
A quiet, simple story of truth and what lives inside oneself.

Though Marcelo has Asberger's syndrome and is thought to be without feelings for others, it is ironic that he is the one character in the book who is able to feel compassion for and understand the motives of those around him.
