Best Boy by Eli Gottlieb

Todd Aaron has been a resident of the Payton Living Center for almost forty years. Todd has autism and was brought to Payton as a teenager by his mother. Todd's only family now is his brother, Nate, who comes to visit a few times a year. Todd's life has recently become complicated by a new roommate, with whom he clashes, and a recent hire named Mike Hinton, who reminds Todd of his abusive father. How will Todd handle the changes in his life? Best Boy, with Todd as the narrator, takes the reader inside the mind of someone with autism.  A compelling read similar to Patricia Wood's Lottery.
