The strength of Hautman's Godless painfully sad novel is the wisecracking but clearly unreliable voice of its narrator, year-old Douglas MacArthur Hanson who admits, "I'm not only disturbed, I'm obsessed. He's also fixated on a pretty girl who clearly wants nothing to do with him.

And he's overly reliant on his only friend, Andy Morrow, a fellow junior who is the popular and outgoing yang to Dougie's outcast and introverted yin.

Hautman expertly teases out the truth about a tragic incident that occurred "at the Tuttle place" three years earlier, a mystery that propels the story to its horrific conclusion.

Dougie is as mathematically gifted and socially inept as the autistic narrator of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time , but he also has a sophisticated wit.

One measure of how sympathetically the author has portrayed him is that even though he stalks a classmate, you root for him to get away with it. Hautman once again proves his keen ability for characterization and for building suspense. Ages up.
