Wonderfully written with both humor and heartache, this Newbery Honor winner captures the struggle of a young girl longing to be like everybody else.


Life with an autistic sibling can be chaotic. It can be distracting. It can be embarrassing. So twelve-year-old Catherine finds a solution. She creates a lengthy list of rules to keep her brother David’s behavior in check:

  • No toys in the fish tank.
  • Open closet doors carefully. Sometimes things fall out.
  • Late doesn’t mean not coming.
  • Some people think they know who you are, when really they don’t.

Catherine desperately wants a normal brother, a normal family, and a normal life. But can rules make everything better?

When Catherine meets Jason, a wheelchair-bound teen who can communicate only through a word book, their friendship surprises her. Even more surprising is Catherine’s discomfort at having a friend with severe disabilities. Why does she always worry about what other people think? Does she have a rule to change her own behavior? Or will her relationship with Jason fall apart?

An honest and astute exploration of how a special needs child can impact a family dynamic – and how accepting differences can benefit all.
