One of England's most beloved works of literature is a book you can read over and over again. A mystery novel about an autistic boy named Christopher John Francis Boone, it has sold over 1m copies in the UK alone.

Chronicling the trials and tribulations of Christopher's condition and his unrelenting search to determine the murder of Wellington, his neighbor's dog, we also go on a relatable journey with the character who faces the same problems most young people face- exams, dealing with family problems, and most of all, coming to terms with who we are.
