Goldfish Boy by Lisa
Thompson, twelve-year-old Matthew suffers from OCD. He is afraid to leave
his bedroom where he has complete control over how clean the space is.
Matthew spends his days looking out his bedroom window at the neighbors in
the cul-de-sac, cleaning his room, and recording what the neighbors are
doing in a notebook.
One day two small children come to stay with his next door neighbor, their
granddad, for the summer. The young girl, Casey, calls Matthew the
goldfish boy because he stays behind his glass window watching but never
interacting with the neighbors.
Matthew is the last person to see the toddler next door before he
disappears. The police search for Teddy, but he canít be found. Will
Matthew be able to leave the safety of his room to help find Teddy?
