Brad Cohen's novel has been on my wishlist for quite awhile. It was required reading for one of my education classes. I have to say that I loved this book. I was upset to see what Cohen had been through in his life and how people treated him. He was treated so meanly because of his Tourette's. He struggled to find a teaching job and then moved on to become a principal. From what I have read Cohen is an awesome man and was a great teacher who taught his students to think outside of the box. I would definitely recommend this book whether they want to teach or not. ( )
