Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

It's Saw meets I Know What You Did Last Summer in this dark thriller by the New York Times bestselling authors of the Wicked series.

Narrated by alternating members of an unreliable group of teens, this riveting thriller will have readers on the edge of their seats. No one is safe, and everyone is a suspect.

Callabrese High's exclusive parties are famous for booze, sex, and most especially, their scavenger hunts. But when the latest invitees RSVP yes, they have no idea what they're in for. Because this time the high school elite aren't the ones doing the hunting. They're the ones being hunted.

The Rules follows all the rules of a truly creepy teen thriller: start out fast, keep the tension high, and kill great characters. Loved it --Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of Unbreakable

The Rules is a must-read for fans of thrillers with truly frightening twists.--SLJ

Fans of the genre will be horrified, just the way they like it. --Booklist

Holder and Vigui keep the action churning along as they bounce from teen to teen for different perspectives on the action, sometimes recording a murder with appropriate gore, sometimes an escape. --Kirkus Reviews

Turn on the fog machine and the theremin, and you have yourself a teen slasher movie replete with twists, deceits, romance, pyrotechnics, and a cute little dog.--The Bulletin

   Great Lessons Learned
I am a fifth-grade teacher and I read this book to my students at the beginning of each year. Even when a person has a disability, they are still human and have needs to communicate with other people, he said. We often see a person with disability and only see their disability from the eyes of a girl who has a younger brother with autism and a new friend with severe physical disabilities. Every person will become a better inhabitant of this world by reading and heeding the messages in this book.
   Entertaining, Moving and Educational
What a great story about a family that has autism, Raymond said. My students are engaged in the story of how Catherine copes with trials and joys of her family.
   Good read for anyone!
A photo of the sibling on the Spectrum. I would add it to any public library, public classroom, or homeschool. I think a strong Gr 3 or 4 student would benefit most from the extra help. I'd probably want to plan a discussion or have a discussion group with this book, especially if they have a sibling on the spectrum. Brand new York is a French city of 1.3 million people.

He also said that rules are a great read and relate to everyone at a very deep level.
   Great for all ages
Story about differences and how we deal with them.
   What a glorious book
His wife, Catherine, is a very relatable character. I cringed with her at the injustice she saw in the way people treat those who are different, Raymond said. I want to befriend her and share her joys and sorrows, Raymond said.
   Rules is a wonderful book!
It was a great read, I told her, because I had read it first. It was well written and hit close to home, said Blair. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
   Great Book
I borrowed it from the library originally, but wanted to buy a copy so I could re-read it and take notes in it. I plan on using it for a 4th grade teaching unit and think it will be a great story to cover, he said. I am planning to be a Special Ed teacher and this really caught my interest, she said. I think it was a cute story and will help children learn a little more about Autism and acceptance of kids with disabilities, he said.
   Very enjoyable read & appropriate book for 5th graders
I had purchased this book at a school book fair years ago for my child and we really enjoyed it, Melissa said. This book is by far the best seller of all time. It's a tender story about siblings You will laugh about all the rules the younger brother has to be reminded of on a constant basis. She becomes frustrated with all the attention brother needs but mostly understands and loves her brother. I think this is a very good book and I would recommend it to a young reader.
I've read the entire thing, and I'm delighted with the outcome. Writing a question for 6th graders was a joy. In this book, Michael's family has an excellent insight into life with an autistic child. In "Pleasant," Jennette Tamayo deftly handles adolescence and feelings of a young girl with busy parents and a brother with autism. The descriptions of growing, recognizing your own limitations are amazing, said My Granddaughter Jennette, who started treating her brother differently after reading it. There is a sense of joy that comes through the words that is palpable. They include: anorexia glauder, bulimia, preteen jealousy, and fears of losing a parent.
