November Books 5) Rules, by Cynthia Lord

A decent and humane American YA novel about a teenager whose younger brother is autistic; she develops friendships both with the boy in the wheelchair who is a fellow client of her brother's therapist, and with the new neighbour's daughter; and the two friendships compete, though as it turns out mostly in her mind. More about growing up than anything, but in a real world where real people are dealing with real disabilities.
