I've been in a bit of a reading slump lately.. haven't had one in a while that I think about throughout the day, try to tell everyone about, and can't wait to pick back up again.
House Rules is that book. I plan to finish it tonight and hope the ending is every bit as good as the rest of the book has been.

I really liked House Rules.  I was impressed with the characters. 

Then I read Picoult's Handle with Care.  I liked the book, hated the ending of HWC.

House Rules was awesome!  My favorite of hers is My Sister's Keeper.  Handle with Care was good, but I felt like it was My Sister's Keeper, backwards.

I have read 5 novels by Picoult, and House Rules I listened to on audio and really enjoyed it.  One of the best of hers by far.  I listened to The Tenth Circle and absolutely hated it.  And I studied Dante!

I have a nephew with Aspergers so I really liked House Rules and could see where this could really happen.
