Rules by Cynthia Lord
Reviewed by Shanta
Rules is a book reflecting the lives of many people throughout America who must deal with autism in their families. Catherine, for instance, is a girl who simply wants to be a normal girl and wants to be treated like everyone else. However, many people treat her differently simply because her brother is autistic. In the summer, Catherine makes two new friends and tries to fit in. Soon, because of her new behavior, everything turns out to be not how it should be. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially if they are in the situation Catherine is in. This book is descriptive in telling such a touching story, inspirational to all readers.
