House rules : a novel by Jodi Picoult( Sound Recording )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,031 libraries worldwide
Jacob Hunt is a teenager: brilliant at maths, wicked sense of humour, extraordinarily organised, hopeless at reading social cues. And Jacob has Asperger's. He is locked in his own world -- aware of the world outside, and wanting to make a connection. Jacob tries to be like everyone else, but doesn't know how. When his tutor is found dead, all the hallmark behaviours of Jacob's syndrome -- not looking someone in the eye, odd movements, inappropriate actions -- start looking a lot like guilt to the police. And Jacob's mother must ask herself the hardest question in the world: is her child capable of murder?
