“Jacob Hunt is an 18-year-old whose IQ borders on the genius spectrum but who also has Asperger's Syndrome, which leaves him unable to interact well with others. His passion for forensic science causes him to become a suspect in the murder of his tutor resulting in an arrest and trial that triggers many of the symptoms of his disability. This heartwarming and moving story is one that only Picoult could write.”
— Carol Hicks, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA
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.
