"House Rules" by Jodi Picoult

I really enjoyed this book. It highlights much that can go wrong with the legal system when the defendant is on the spectrum. I found Jacob to have many more traits than I have, and more than most of the people I know who are on the spectrum, but the story line rings true. The characters seem quite real.

I know one of the people who advised the author in writing it: Stephanie Loo, of Asperger Association of New England (AANE).

Have any of you read this book? I had trouble putting it down.
