House Rules

By: Jodi Picoult

House Rules looks at how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way—and fails those who communicate differently.  Jacob Hunt is a teenage boy with Asperger’s; like many kids with AS, he is unable to express himself clearly but has a special focus on one subject—in his case, forensic analysis. He often shows up at crime scenes and tells the cops what they ought to do. But when his town is rocked by a brutal murder, the police come to question Jacob.
