Another great book by Picoult

If you haven’t read anything by Jodi Picoult, you’re missing out.  I just finished House Rules.  I’ve taught a few children who are on the spectrum of Autism, and this book was fascinating in that respect.  It’s a murder mystery as well, and a story of a single mother.  Chapters alternate between the characters’ voices, and the tension is steady all the way through.  The very end is the only spot I thought was unrealistic, but it’s forgiveable. It’s touching, heartbreaking, intriguing, and funny–a terrific combination.
