I had never heard of Jodi Picoult until about 2 years ago. And since the first time her name came to my cognizance, I’ve heard nothing but good things about her writing. Especially My Sister’s Keeper. When I found the book at a relatively cheap price, I was beyond excited. Way beyond excited. I obviously wanted to find out for myself if the story was worth all the hype it was getting. It still gets a lot of positive press.
The most highly praised of Picoult’s books were My Sister’s Keeper and Picture Perfect, according to my observation. But when I read through the summary of House Rules, I was intrigued and I immediately snapped it up at a relatively cheap price. Though I bought three of Picoult’s books earlier, it was House Rules that I read first. And I am glad I did so.
