Bravo, Jodi Picoult! House Rules is Great!

House Rules: A NovelI finished reading House Rules: A Novel by Jodi Picoult.  It's the story about an 18-year-old boy named Jacob Hunt who has Asperger's Syndrome, is very interested in forensics and crime solving, and finds himself accused of murder.

I always find the level of research Jodi Picoult does for her novels amazing, and the research for this particular project was even more fascinating.  When I went to her book signing, Jodi Picoult explained the research she did by talking to families with children with Asperger's as well as people with the syndrome.  If you've never met a person who has Autism or Asperger's Syndrome, this will give you a better idea of the impact it has on the person and their family.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate this book a 3.5.  It's a good read.  The ending seemed a little rushed and flat to me, but overall it was good.
