A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin

This book became my favorite during summer break last year, and it is such a great read, that I would recommend it to anyone. The story starts off with a young girl watching home movies in the boarding house that her parents own. The home movies are of the year that she met the uncle she never knew she had. Although her uncle has a mental disability, they become the best of friends. During the course of that year, his behavior gets more and more uncontrollable,
And the young girl begins to question how her own life is going, and if she too has an issue similar to her uncle.
