""In order for me to tell you I have nothing to say, I have to say it, which means I have something to say."" Freddy is autistic. When he's seven years old, his mother walks him to the train station, sits him on a bench, kisses his forehead, and disappears from his life. In a few short days, everything changes. His father moves him across town, enrols him in a different school, and takes him away from little Saskia, the only friend he's ever had. Ten years later, Freddy is struggling to get through his last year of high school. He painstakingly avoids interactions with other students, who don't understand his hyper-literal perspective. But then Saskia appears, and she's different from the laughing little girl he remembers. She no longer smiles, and she doesn't speak. As they reconnect, Freddy begins to remember what really happened ten years ago. And everything he thought he knew begins to unravel. Both humorous and heartbreaking, "Do You Think This Is Strange?" is a coming-of-age tale you won't soon forget.
