House Rules

Another great read from one of my favorites, Jodi Picoult.  She tells the story of a young man with Asperger’s.  As with most of Picoult’s books, she brings a controversial subject to the forefront.

As the lead character, Jacob, is arrested for murder, you begin to think about how Asperger’s affects not only those with the disorder, but families and those around them.   The question then becomes how the legal system works or doesn’t work for people with communication disorders.  You can see the trailer for the book here.
