The basis for the Lifetime movie! Beatrice "Trixie" Stone (Brittany Robertson, "Avalon High") accuses boyfriend Jason of date rape; he insists it's consensual. The story soon gets controversial and complicated. Trixie's mom (Kelly Preston) just happens to teach about Dante and his nine circles; her dad (Ron Eldard) is a comic book artist (Picoult wrote "Wonder Woman" some time in her career).
this was a great book, and shes def one of my favorite writers. anything by her is worth reading, in my opinion
Yet another book that I thoroughly enjoyed from one of my favorite authors, Jodi Piccoult. How far would a parent go, to protect his/her child?
Jodi Picoult's books offer a little too much reality for my liking. Probably my profession.
I have to admit I haven't read many of Picoult's books but The Tenth Circle is one of my favorites. Some think this book is different than her others; she says it still explores the parent-child relationship so in that way it is similar to her other books. I like the way she explores the father-daughter relationship after the daughter is raped. I also like her references to Dante and the fact that the father's graphic novel is brought into the story line. It's a great read and I was hooked right away.
anything by jodi picoult is worth reading! She knows how to jerk some tears
love her books looks like I need to add a new one to my reading list.
Incase you haven't noticed- Jodi Picoult is my favorite author.
My one and only a FAVORITE book. Everyone should read this.
Worth Reading, Awesome Book, Asperger, House Rules, Favorite Books, Favorite Author, Good Books, Picoult Book
jodi picoult's books always center around a controversial issue. the characters are so well developed that you feel you know them. the stories will tug your heart strings. the endings will twist your mind. this is my favorite book of hers. it explores the world of Asperger's Syndrome. please read!!
Awesome book and if you know or are close to or need to be to anyone on the Autism Spectrum, this is a must read. However any Jodi Picoult book is well worth reading as this woman is cutting edge, does amazing research and always a fantastic read!
HOUSE RULES is about Jacob Hunt, a teenage boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject – in his case, forensic analysis.
A new book my Jodi Pincoult about a teenage boy with Asperger's Syndrome finds himself accused of murder. HOUSE RULES looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way – but lousy for those who don’t One of the best books I ever read.
HOUSE RULES by Jodi Picoult. This was my first Picoult read. I was drawn to the storyline about a boy with Aspergers. I loved reading the mystery from multiple perspectives - it kept me thinking beyond the last page read.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult. One of my all time favorite books. About a boy who struggles with Asperger's. I fell in love with this little boy! After I finished the last page of the book, I cried partially due to the fact that I knew as soon as I closed the book, I would miss that little boy.
Love Jodi Picoult books, House Rules is great for learning about Asperger's
House Rules. Awesome book!! Also my favorite author. :)
Understanding Asperger Syndrome......SUCH a good book!

19 minutes. This was one of my first Jodi Picoult books...then I was hooked. Great book...great ending!!!
Jodi Picoult. 19 minutes.. I was born on the 19th... main character and I share the same last name... clearly my favorite book
This book is about a gun shooting that occured at a high school. Like all Jodi Picoult books there are a number of different characters whose viewpoints you are shown, featuring the shooter and a student who was friends with some of those killed during the shooting.
Years of research on school shootings finally culminated in this book about 19 minutes in a school. It was horrifying and truthful. Picoult captured the essence of high school students and their psychology in this eye-opening novel.
A great read about how we come to make decisions, Nineteen Minutes centers around the story of a high school shooting, and is told, in classic Jodi Picoult style, from 5 different viewpoints using flashbacks and opinions about the present day
Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult: Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens--until the day its complacency is shattered by a school shooting. Josie Cormier, the daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened before her very own eyes--or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show--destroying the closest of friendships and families. Books
Jodi Picoult. one of my favorite authors and such an amazing book
one of my favorite books by my favorite author Jodi Picoult
I want to post something everyday this year that I love, but it's already the 7th so I'm a little behind... I'll have to post a few things a day until I catch up! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All of my posts are in no particular order, I'll just post them as I think of them. The first thing I love is... Jodi Picoult Books. They're the best! I could sit down and read one of her books cover to cover. I've already finished eleven of her books. Right now I'm working on "Keeping Faith," but I keep picking right before I go to bed to read and I always fall asleep right after reading a page or two. I think I'll make it a goal to finish it by the end of the weekend... Mariah finds her husband with another woman for the second time in their marriage. He files for divorce and gives her full custody of their child, Faith, who develops an imaginary friend. When her mother takes her to see a therapist, she is told that her daughter may be seeing God. Faith receives a lot of media attention for different things that happen to her throughout the book. Amid these events, she receives attention from a teleathiest named Ian Fletcher, who also causes all sorts of problems. If you've never read a Jodi Picoult book, I suggest you start with "Nineteen Minutes." It's my favorite book of hers so far. It starts with a shooting in a small high school. After the shooting, the town's residents must not only seek justice in order to begin healing, but also come to terms with the role they played in the tragedy. Joise, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, could be the state's best witness, but she cannot remember what happened. I promise that you will not be able to put the book down. It's so emotionally charged and well written. I read it in Arizona over spring break last year and I don't think I put it down once. She does a really good job of developing all the characters and making you care about all of them! Another one of my favorites is "My Sister's Keepers", but don't compare it to the movie... it's completely different, and the book is a lot better. I haven't even seen it myself, but people told me about it and it's not the same. I always prefer the book over the movie anyways, so maybe I'm biased. My other favorites are "The Pact" and "Vanishing Acts." The only book I didn't care for was "Handle With Care." If you did like, let me know! Maybe I just need to reread it, but I really didn't like the ending. Although I do think that you should read it and decide for yourself! I've read every book except - House Rules - Wonder Woman - Perfect Match - Mercy - Harvesting the Heart - Songs of the Humpback Whale Which one should I read next?
