Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco Stork, Francisco X. Stork

This summer, Arturo Sandoval declares, his son Marcelo will learn about the real world. He will work in the mailroom of Arturos law firm. He will interact with everyone in the office. He will be normal, as Arturo has always said he is, and not have a highly functioning form of Aspergers Syndrome, as Marcelo knows he does. And Marcelo, reluctantly, must agree to his fathers terms. He soon learns reality isnt easy. Wendell, the son of Arturos partner, offers friendship to further his own ends. The law firm hides an injustice that will transform Marcelos world. But through it all, there is Jasmine, his beautiful and tenacious coworker, his true friend - and perhaps more. Reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in the intensity and purity of its voice, this extraordinary novel encompasses a legal battle, a subtle love story, and the primal coming-of-age narrative: discovering the truth of ones own capabilities.
