Synopsis:
When your son can’t look you in the eye…does that mean he’s guilty?
Jacob Hunt is a teen with Asperger’s syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, though he is brilliant in many ways. But he has a special focus on one subject – forensic analysis. A police scanner in his room clues him in to crime scenes, and he’s always showing up and telling the cops what to do. And he’s usually right.
But when Jacob’s small hometown is rocked by a terrible murder, law enforcement comes to him. Jacob’s behaviors are hallmark Asperger’s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police. Suddenly the Hunt family, who only want to fit in, are directly in the spotlight. For Jacob’s mother, Emma, it’s a brutal reminder of the intolerance and misunderstanding that always threaten her family. For his brother, Theo, it’s another indication why nothing is normal because of Jacob.
And over this small family, the soul-searing question looms: Did Jacob commit murder? 

My Thoughts:
This is strange book. It talks about autism child. It goe really is a novel about a boy that has Asperger Syndrome. It has goes though the life of a boy that has Asperger Syndrome and he has younger brother.

Jacob is accused of murder and they end of going to trail and Jacob acts out and has outburst and everyone doe not understand this quirks. They find out what really happens at the end of the story. Emma is franstic and try to explain about her son condition.

Review: My Sister Keeper

Title of Book: My Sister Keeper
Author: Jodi Picoult
Genres: Adult, Young Adult, Family,
Publisher: Washington Square Press
Pub Date: May 19, 2009 (423 Pages, Paperback)
Book Source: Paperback
Author Contact: Goodreads / Website / Twitter

Synopsis:
“New York Times”-bestselling author Picoult, widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people, tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

My Thoughts:
The story will make your heartbroken. I know there a movie called the same thing but the ending has changed from the books ending. If you watched the movie before reading this book your are going to get surprise ending either way but especially by the book ending.

Anna doe go to court hearing to get a medical emancipation from her parents. You see how each member of the family is suffering from her older sister Kate illness. It is something you should have tissures around for it a  bit sad. You also start to understand the movie a bit but I really like the book better then the movie. Though I was shock to see what sister dies in book.
