    " This book was inspiring to me for disability people. This book was about a girl who's brother had a disability about forgetting things. She had to make up all these rules for him to follow around the house and around her because she is embarrassed by him because he acts up around her friends. When at the learning center she meets a child with a speaking disability and had to use flash cards. She would always make him new flash cards and draw on them because she was an artist. Him and her would communicate with the cards and talk about their lives. She really begins to like him but has to chose between him and her friends because they make fun of her for hanging out with him. She then meets a new girl that is her neighbor and decides to go swimming with her on her friends birthday party that she was invited to. He is then disappointed in her and is mad at her. He then forgives her and they become friends again. "

    " Rules is a terrific book. First Cathrine has a brother who does most things wrong. Catherine helps her brother by teaching him rules. Catherine writes rules in the back of her drawing pad. She writes things as "Don't put toys in the fish tank" and others like "Peaches are another examples of a apple but with fur". Catherine's world gets turned around when a new girl moves next door and how she tries to make friends friends with the girl named Krisi. Will Cathrine be able to make Krisi her adventurous best friends or will her brother ruin it for her? P.S you need to read this book! "
