Fantastic book to teach your students in upper elementary about acceptance, differences, respect and autism. Catherine is a 12 year old who wants to live a normal life. She has a brother with autism, named David, that is the family's main focus. Catherine helps her brother is this heartwarming book cope with having autism. She teaches his the "rules" about the real world, but was is normal anyways? ( )

It took me a long time to finally get around to reading this book! I liked it, but it was not what I expected.

First, I had this impression that it would be funnier and warmer, but it was very angsty. A book like this could easily be in the teen section of the library as well as the children's.

Second, Katherine (Catherine? I listened to the audio book) had a more interesting relationship with Jason, a boy around her age with cerebral palsy, than with her brother David who has autism. Jason can't speak and communicates by pointing at word cards. Katherine decides to make him more word cards, which was a great literary device and really contributed a lot to the theme of coping with disabilities. Still, I expected the book to be more about Katherine's relationship with her brother, and I was surprised that it wasn't the main focus and didn't change a lot through the course of the book.

Last, the audiobook narrator was, I think, the same actor who does the voice of Clementine. It made me think Catherine was so young! The narrator did a fine job (I wouldn't say she STINKS A BIG ONE), but it wasn't ideal for me because I've listened to several of the Clementine books.

A great novel that I have read quite a few times. The main character Catherine is an appealing and relatable character who tries to balance her love for her special needs brother with her resentment of his special needs. She has believable growth through the story and comes to understand that her embarrassment is for herself rather than for her brother. It is an interesting story that sees Catherine realize that real friends will not judge her for her circumstances. ( )

"Rules" has both a Newberry award and a Schneider Family Book award. The book follows Caroline, a 12-year-old with a brother, David, who has a disability. She tries to teach David the "rules" of society and how he should act to keep him from embarrassing her and himself. Caroline eventually makes a new friend and must navigate the struggles of her new relationship while dealing with the stigma surrounding her brother's disability.
This book could be used to bring awareness and understanding to disabilities and could be used to educate students on how to appropriately interact with students with disabilities.
"Rules" highlights the disabled community and the struggles they and their families face, as well as the struggles students, experience while trying to fit in with their peers ( )

This book was so touching… about a middle school girl who had a brother with autism and her daily struggles. She makes friends with a boy in a wheel chair and she learns about true friendship! ( )

My deepest appreciation to:
Everyone at Scholastic Press, especially Marijka Kostiw, Kristina Albertson, Tracey Mack, and Leslie Budnick.

Tracey Adams, my wonderful agent.

The members of my critique groups, each of whom possess that rare combination of Charlotte the spider: a true friend and a good writer.

My retreat-mates who put me on the right track: Franny Billingsley, Toni Buzzeo, Sarah Lamstein, Dana Walrath, Mary Atkinson, Carol Peacock, and Jackie Davies.
With special thanks to Amy Butler Greenfield, Nancy Werlin, Amanda Jenkins, Denise Johns, Melissa Wyatt, Lisa Firke, Lisa Harkrader, Laura Weiss, Mary Pearson, Amy McAuley, and Kristina Cliff-Evans.

And to my parents, Earl and Elaine Lord, who gave me wings but always left the porch light on to show the way home.
To John, Julia, and Gregory
I love you more than words.

"Come on, David." I let go of his sleeve, afraid I'll rip it. When he was little, I could pull my brother behind me if he didn't want to do something, but now David's eight and too strong to be pulled.

I add another rule to David's list: Sometimes people laugh when they like you. But sometimes they laugh to hurt you.
"I wish everyone had the same chances," I say. "Because it stinks a big one that they don't."
Sometimes I wish someone would invent a pill so David'd wake up one morning without autism, like someone waking up from a long coma, and he'd say, "Jeez, Catherine, where have I been?"
