Rules follows the story of Catherine, a twelve-year-old girl who feels torn between her responsibilities as the older sister of David, who has autism, and her desire to make friends and fit in. As Catherine navigates the complexities of family life and middle school, she learns valuable lessons about empathy, acceptance, and the true meaning of friendship. Through her interactions with Jason, a nonverbal boy who communicates using a communication board, Catherine discovers the importance of embracing differences and being true to oneself. In the classroom, Rules can be used to promote discussions about empathy, acceptance, and understanding differences. Teachers can guide students in exploring the experiences of individuals with autism and discussing ways to create inclusive and supportive environments for people of all abilities… (mer)

1. Written by Newbury Honor-winning author Cynthia Lord
2. Recommended for rabbit lovers that are looking for an intermediate-leveled text
3. While this story is a work of fiction, there are some educational facts about rabbits and other animals sprinkled in the story
4. Neurodiversity representation through Jack's character - Jack has highly sensitive senses, knows a lot of interesting facts about animals, and works with an aide at school. Jack's disability was never named in the story, but that's okay - he does not need to be labeled. However, in the author's note, Lord mentions that her son has autism, so that he may have inspired Jack's character
5. I can make a personal connection to this book because my family adopted a bunny this past Christmas. There were many anecdotes from this story that I related to my bunny Morris - similarly to Emma's bunny Lapi, Morris chins items that he claims as his, he binkies when he is excited, and he stands on his hind legs when he wants something that is up high. Because of my background knowledge on rabbits, I was able to clearly picture the descriptions that the author wrote about in this book.
