Send in the Idiots

Diagnosed w/ autism, Nazeer tries to find four of the "Idiots" with whom he went to school.

The simplicity of this is growing on me. Four friends, four chairs; I've been told different color chairs are pretty normal in settings such as a school for people with special needs. And the chairs are empty. Where did the students go? That's what the book is about.

Think about some of the photos used on books which are attractive but which just don't feel right, even after you've read the book. The feet, the shoes, the hem of the dress, etc. And then think about this photo.

This is one of those covers/title combinations that would make me pick up the book.
