2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Rules of Love Cara Malone


1) I love the two main characters with all my heart. They were extremely well and sympathetically drawn, and I rooted for them the entire way through. A unique and delightful love story.
2) Really good read. I liked the pacing and how the Asperger syndrome was portrait. The writing style is really good. The story is definitely new and refreshing. The characters interesting enough and the story believable. A book that probably I will read again in the future! Well done!

Maxine Saddler has never been in love. She knows exactly what it looks like – she’s spent years studying the phenomenon in other people, but her Asperger syndrome makes it far too anxiety-provoking to attempt such a thing in her own life. Instead, she focuses exclusively on academics. She’s 23 years old, starting grad school, and perfectly content to ignore the world beyond her textbooks. That is, until she meets Ruby Satterwhite, who makes Max want to give love one more shot. Ruby is the consummate social butterfly – sorority president, extracurricular list a mile long, and stunning to boot. In short, she’s way out of Max’s league, and on top of it all, she kind of hates Max for how she blurts out whatever’s on her mind, no matter how blunt. But when they’re thrown grudgingly together for a group project in their first class, the heavens open up and the sparks begin to fly. There are only two problems – Ruby’s still pining for her perfect ex-girlfriend. It’s time to turn on the charm like never before, but can Max master the rules of love?
