?What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book??
Jodi Picoult usually picks topics that she sees around her: topics close to her heart or those that she has experienced firsthand. In this case, just like with Sing You Home, the subject is someone close?family. Her cousin David, son of her Aunt Nancy, was the most beautiful baby that she had lain eyes on. However, when he became a toddler, they soon realized that he was not an ordinary kid. He was diagnosed with the autism spectrum. Firsthand, Jodi Picoult was able to witness the challenges of caring for someone with autism.
David, just like Jacob in House Rules, had tantrums that were hard to control, particularly because he was six feet tall and weighed 200 pounds. Once, when he was on the verge of a meltdown at a public place, his mom had to sit on him to stop him from throwing a tantrum. An observer saw it and called the police because it looked like child abuse. When David turned 21, he went to live in a home with other autistic young adults. During one meltdown, he punched through a window, which made the caretaker call the police to make him stop. However, law enforcement authorities are only effective with people who are able to explain their side of the story or the situation.
Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.
