House Rules
Jodi Picoult
Pg. 306

One foreshadowing spot in my book is a part where Jacob found out that Jess was dead and was totally shocked. They said in the book that you can tell when autistic kids are lying and when they asked Jacob if he killed Jess, he said no. And you can tell when they are lying and by the details in the book, you know that Jacob did not kill Jess. This foreshadows that later when Jacob goes to court he will be found innocent and not be taken to jail. Another foreshadowing event in my book would be how Jacob's mom and Oliver have a connection, you can tell they hit it off right when they met. And now they are still getting along really well with each other and even though they get on each others nerves sometimes they still like each other and they are pretty much dating. He came over for supper one night, so it foreshadowed that Jacob's mom and Oliver would be together because of how they met each other. I found the hint for Jacob not killing Jess subtle because even though he is telling the truth about not killing Jess, some people do not know that so they are going to question him even further so it is only signs for the reader to see and not for other characters in the book. However, Oliver and Jacob's mom was an obvious sign I believe to some people. Because once they started hanging out with each other, Theo, her son, noticed they had an attraction for each other and Jacob even being autistic noticed it as well.

  1. Sounds like a really good book. And, a lot of foreshadowing going on. Also, a lot of people blaming other people, just to find who killed Jes.
