Synopsis

One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice. But when his tutor is found dead, he becomes a suspect. Suddenly, his Asperger’s traits—not looking people in the eye, tics and twitches—look more like guilt in the view of police.

I love Picoult's books but have felt recently that she is churning them out too quickly to produce quality stories. This book however is one of my favorite Picoults in years. A fantastic read, great character development!
