House Rules by Jodi Picoult - Book Review

House RulesHouse Rules by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Hunt has a passion for forensic science. Everyday at 4:30pm, he watches his favorite tv show, "Crime Busters", and takes detailed notes of each episode, and the case it covers. Jacob eats only yellow foods on Mondays, and will wear only the color blue on Fridays. He does not like for his routine to be disturbed. Jacob has Asperger's syndrome.

Jacob's mother, Emma, and 15-year-old brother, Theo, are accustomed to his unusual behavior. Emma has spent 15 years helping Jacob to connect with others.

Trouble begins when Jacob is linked to a homicide crime scene. Traits that are typical for someone with Aspergers syndrome, such as failure to make eye-contact, only further incriminate Jacob. His interest in forensic science is also suspicious. But is he guilty?

"House Rules", though fictional, was a fascinating and enlightening account of living with Aspergers. Told from the point of view of 5 characters, including Jacob himself, the reader finds out how this disorder can affect every member of a family.
