Heather Lewis writes in a way that no other author writes. The book is almost completely devoid of descriptions of color and scenery. Everything is seen through the eyes of a drug addicted fifteen year-old, it is a terrifying experience.

Heather Lewis writes in a way that no other author writes. I have not been so horrified since John Updike's Rabbit Run or Train Spotting. I would read it again, but I am still too traumatized. If you want a taste of the wild side of life without risking arrest, this is the one. Heather Lewis also wrote one other novel, The Second Suspect. I have heard rumors that the author is no longer with us, so it looks like these are the only works we will have.

House Rules book Heather Lewis left behind a couple more novels about teenaged girls who suffer a lot of abuse.

Even Yonahloosee Riding Camp - tho’ belonging to a higher level of literature - doesn’t take you over the jumps with Thea Atwell as Heather Lewis lets you ride with Lee. The only thing I’ve read recently that matches this in sheer intensity is the chapter in Dare Me where the Sutton Grove cheer squad elevate Beth Cassidy for what is expected to be the culminating 2-2-1. Heather Lewis left behind a couple more novels about teenaged girls who suffer a lot of abuse.

"This utterly unexpected book dives straight into the chaos of an American adolescence, echoing the infernal laughter of William S. Burroughs as it probes the messier forms of sexual awakenings."-Details

"House Rules . . . ventures off the map into an uncharted, quite terrifying strip of psychological badlands."-The Village Voice

With extraordinary insight, Heather Lewis describes a world she knew from the inside. Since its first publication 10 years ago, House Rules has established itself as a classic of lesbian literature.

Reminds me of the old style pulp books from the 1940s and there abouts but much harsher with more of an edge- very dark but keeps your interest.

This novel was recommended to me by a friend who swore I would not be sorry if I read it. I was not sorry. I read this novel during a time in my life when I needed a new outlook and I got it. Even if the only thing that one is able to take away from the novel is to feel like your life is not as bad as Lee's then the book is a success. Heather Lewis writes in a way that no other author writes. The book is almost completely devoid of descriptions of color and scenery. Everything is seen through the eyes of a drug addicted fifteen year-old, it is a terrifying experience. I am an avid reader and I don't think I have ever been in the head of a character quite like I was in Lee's head. You know what she is thinking before she thinks it, you know what she will do before she does it.
If you ever wanted to see the dark side of humanity this is it. I have not been so horrified since John Updike's Rabbit Run or Train Spotting. I would read it again, but I am still too traumatized. If you want a taste of the wild side of life without risking arrest, this is the one.
Heather Lewis also wrote one other novel, The Second Suspect. I have heard rumors that the author is no longer with us, so it looks like these are the only works we will have.
Simply amazing.

I bought the hardcover when this book was first published not really knowing what I was in for and, well, damn. I was young enough think possibly the book was powerful. Now I see it as the kind of book that makes readers feel hectored with it's "do you know what pain and suffering is" episodes of sexual abuse. Pretty much, stay away. But if you're a curious cat, and this repetitive puerile stuff gets stuck in your head, you were warned.

This is possibly the best first book I have ever read from any author. It's gritty, real, and smacks of first hand experience. Yes, it's disturbing, yes it stays with you for a long time, but to be honest, I read books to transport somewhere outside of my own experience, and this did it, so effectively. I am sad she is not able to write more.

Be prepared to be disturbed...

The book was written assuming everyone was familiar with horse riding lingo and drug lingo. I've ridden a horse once in my life, and I was never a heroin user. I was lost through alot of the book.. Honestly halfway through I wanted to put it down but I can't do that.. I finished the book and normally I feel something when I'm done. I just turned the last page and said.. "Hmm, thats it?" There wasnt much of a plot or point to the book. It is very graphic in the sex scenes. I do not belive I would recommend this book to anyone. It wasnt worth the ten bucks.
