Rules by Cynthia Lord

Rules is a touching story about a 12-year-old girl named Catherine whose younger brother David has autism.  The main storyline explores the frustrations and joys of having a sibling with special needs.  The secondary storyline is about Catherine's special friendship with Jason, a wheelchair bound fourteen-year-old who cannot speak.  This book helped me imagine life from the perspective of someone who is perceived as "different."  If you are between the ages of 10-12 and you like to read feel-good stories that touch your heart and expand your view of the world, this book is for you!
