Description

When a teenage boy with Asperger's is arrested for murder, his family face a daunting task to prove his innocence.

Jacob Hunt is a teenage boy with Asperger's Syndrome. He's hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself to others, and like many children with Asperger's, Jacob has an obsessive focus on one subject-in his case, forensic analysis. He's always showing up at crime scenes, thanks to the police scanner he keeps in his room, and telling the cops what they need to do-and he's usually right. But then one day his tutor is found dead, and the police come to question him. Reluctance to make eye contact, stimulatory tics and twitches, inappropriate gestures, all these can look a lot like guilt. Suddenly, Jacob finds himself accused of murder.
House Rules looks at what it means to be different in our society, and at the extremes of love and loyalty a family must call upon to help each other overcome impossible circumstances.

'Picoult writes with unassuming brilliance.' - Stephen King
'Picoult has become a master-almost a clairvoyant-at targeting hot issues and writing highly readable page-turners about them...... It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong.' - Washington Post
