"Mrs. Brook always wants me to look in her eyes. She says we can see emotions in people's eyes. I can't." Ten-year-old Caitlin has Asperger's syndrome. Her brother, Devon, always helped Caitlin with the confusing world around her, but he was killed in a recent school shooting. Caitlin's school counselor has told her about something called "closure," and Caitlin knows that she and her dad need it. Unfortunately, no one can tell Caitlin where to find it.
