House Rules

House Rules Оценка: 5.0 (1)
Genre: thriller
Annotation:
The astonishing new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult about a family torn apart by an accusation of murder.

They tell me I`m lucky to have a son who`s so verbal, who is blisteringly intelligent, who can take apart the broken microwave and have it working again an hour later. They think there is no greater hell than having a son who is locked in his own world, unaware that there`s a wider one to explore. But try having a son who is locked in his own world, and still wants to make a connection. A son who tries to be like everyone else, but truly doesn`t know how.

Jacob Hunt is a teenage boy with Asperger`s syndrome. He`s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject in his case, forensic analysis. He`s always showing up at crime scenes, thanks to the police scanner he keeps in his room, and telling the cops what they need to do &and he`s usually right. But then his town is rocked by a terrible murder and, for a change, the police come to Jacob with questions. All of the hallmark behaviors of Asperger`s not looking someone in the eye, stimulatory tics and twitches, flat affect can look a lot like guilt to law enforcement personnel. Suddenly, Jacob and his family, who only want to fit in, feel the spotlight shining directly on them. For his mother, Emma, it`s a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, Theo, it`s another indication of why nothing is normal because of Jacob. And over this small family the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder?

Emotionally powerful from beginning to end, House Rules looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way and fails those who don`t.
