Caleb’s autism sometimes makes it difficult for Leo to be his brother, especially when public outbursts and late-night screeching are a regular occurrence. Caleb, Leo, and their parents eventually have to move because of Caleb’s behavior towards their neighbors, and Caleb isn’t responding well to the change in routine. He begins taking his frustration out on Leo, sometimes hitting him to the point of leaving bruises. Leo begins literally running away from his problems, Running Full Tilt (Charlesbridge, $17.99) mile after mile when being around Caleb is just too much.
