He has a brown and white pet rat named Toby. His mother died of a heart attack two years ago, though he suspects that it was probably an aneurysm or embolism. He hates the colors yellow and brown, but loves red and the color of metal. He does not like most fictional books because they lie, but he does like Sherlock Holmes murder mysteries. He likes stars, but does not like crowds or loud noises. He wants to be an astronaut when he grows up, even though he knows that it is not likely to happen. He loves math and the natural order of the world. He likes dogs. MEET THE AUTHOR Lacey Kohlmoos is a writer, traveler and lover of the arts. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in Drama & the Studies of Women and Gender, the only thing she knew for sure was that she wanted to travel. So, she embarked on a 10.5 month round-the-world trip, then traveled to Costa Rica where she spent one year teaching elementary school English in a small mountain town. Throughout her two years of travels, she's always kept a blog EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Wellington is dead. A garden fork has gone through his abdomen and stuck into the ground below. As Christopher kneels over the still warm dog, Mrs. Shears runs out of her house screaming. Christopher does not like to be yelled at, so he curls up in a ball on the grass, closes his eyes, and covers his ears with his hands. When the police are called to the scene, one of them touches Christopher while questioning him. Christopher does not like to be touched, so he punches the police officer who in turn arrests the boy. Christopher does not mind the police station cell because it is a perfect cube, but he does not stay there for very long. When Christopher's father arrives at the station, he is livid and gets the officers to release his son with just a warning. On the way home, Christopher's father tells him to drop his interest in Wellington even though Christopher considers the dog's death a murder.
