Description
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and the modern classics My Sister&;s Keeper, The Storyteller, and more, comes a &;complex, compassionate, and smart&; (The Washington Post) novel about a family torn apart by a murder accusation.When your son can&;t look you in the eye&;does that mean he&;s guilty? Jacob Hunt is a teen with Asperger&;s syndrome. He&;s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, though he is brilliant in many ways. He has a special focus on one subject&;forensic analysis. A police scanner in his room clues him in to crime scenes, and he&;s always showing up and telling the cops what to do. And he&;s usually right. But when Jacob&;s small hometown is rocked by a terrible murder, law enforcement comes to him. Jacob&;s behaviors are hallmark Asperger&;s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police. Suddenly the Hunt family, who only want to fit in, are thrust directly in the spotlight. For Jacob&;s mother, it&;s a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, it&;s another indication why nothing is normal because of Jacob. And for the frightened small town, the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder? House Rules is &;a provocative story in which [Picoult] explores the pain of trying to comprehend the people we love&;and reminds us that the truth often travels in disguise&; (People).
