Rules by Cynthia Lord

This book has been on my to read list for a really long time now. Now that I have read it, I do not know why I took so long to get to it. This book is about a girl who is afraid of her younger brother embarrassing her. He is autistic and she is always making up rules for him to follow. When she waits outside the clinic where he goes to occupational therapy she makes a very unexpected friend that helps her realize things about herself, her brother and friendship. I think that this book does a really good job of dealing with the perspective and feelings of an older sibling that has a younger sibling with a disability. If you liked Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper or When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds you would like this book.
