Colin Fischer is 14 and has Aspberger's. Although he struggles to understand human emotions, he's brilliant at logical deduction. Sherlock Holmes is his pin-up. When a gun fires into the ceiling of the school cafeteria, everyone blames Wayne, school bully and usual suspect. But Colin Fischer turns detective; only he spots a connection between the gun and some birthday cake. Only Colin can uncover the truth. A brilliantly entertaining read for anyone who loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.
