WELCOME TO FLACS 2'S FIFTH GRADE SUMMER LOVIN' READING BOOK- RULES BY CYNTHIA LORD

MEET THE AUTHOR

When Cynthia Lord sat down to write her first children's book, she knew it would be a middle-grade novel. As she recalls, "I grew up next to a lake in New Hampshire and I remember being ten years old, lying on our pier, listening to the seagulls calling, and daydreaming about Borrowers and Chocolate Factories and Secret Gardens."
 

 

In her debut novel Rules, twelve-year-old Catherine just wants a normal life, which is near impossible with a brother with autism and a family that revolves around his disability. Filled with humor and warmth, Rules takes a candid and sensitive look at feeling different and finding acceptance beyond the rules.
