Another fantastic book by Jodi Picoult! Picoult is one of my favorite authors ever since I read “My Sister’s Keeper”. What I love about her, is, that she is not afraid to write about difficult topics. “House Rules” centers on Jacob – a young man with Asperger’s. When his social skills teacher is fo...

This is one of those books that you just really don't want to put down, and then when you do, you're still thinking about it! I love all the characters and she makes them so relatable even thought they're all different and not at all like me. I also love the fact that I can pretty much count on the ...

After reading Nineteen Minutes, A Change of Heart and Plain Truth, I was very open, and even ...

I wanted to love this book.Jodi's previous books were so amazing I guess she would just always be able to deliver that level of awesome. This is a great book! I cannot say that enough, the richness of the characters and the exploration of each of them was great.Where this fell short for me was the c...
Evocative Romance. Unexpected Evil.
" Solid writing, fairly good grasp of Asperger's issues, but in my opinion the author dropped the proverbial ball when it came to Jacob's mother. The whole trauma of the story could have been avoided with one simple question from her: "Jacob, did you...?" and as the mom of an Aspie, she would have k...
