This book doesn't really fall under the catagory of psychological fiction by child narrators. However, it is a bit similar to the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, except that it is non-fiction.

Ted's Review said:
Daniel has what’s called "high functioning" autism. He is able to communicate extremely well and this book gives you a great idea of what it’s like to be autistic. He is more of a reporter, without the "normal" emotions of others -- and this is made clear when you read what he writes. His fascination with math was a bit tedious to me (he memorized Pi to 21,000 decimal places!), but he is extremely likable and this book is a quick and fascinating read. You will find yourself experiencing a lot of empathy for someone who finds this to be such a difficult emotion.
