Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Nancy Star comes a deeply moving novel about the truths we hide from others and the lies we tell ourselves.

To the outside world, beloved advice columnist Lane Meckler has all the answers. What no one knows is that she also has a secret: her life is a disaster, and it's just gotten worse. Her husband, whom she was planning to leave, has died in a freak accident. Her six-year-old son, Henry, has stopped speaking to everyone but her. Lane's solution? Move. Growing up, that was what her family did best.

But when she and Henry pack up and leave, Lane realizes that their next home is no better, and she finally begins to ask herself some hard questions. What made her family move so often? Why has she always felt like an outsider? How can she get Henry to speak?

On a journey to help her son find his voice, Lane discovers that somewhere along the way she lost her own. If she wants to help him, she'll need to find the courage to face the past and to speak the truth she’s been hiding from for years.

Critic Reviews

"With Rules for Moving, Nancy Star takes us beyond the paywall to ask what happens when our favorite internet advice columnist needs help of her own. A tender exploration of family, friendship, and what it means to be the black sheep." (Julia Phillips, National Book Award finalist, author of Disappearing Earth)

Loved this book

This book had such wonderful characters that I felt as if I knew them and was sad to see them go when I finished the book. I loved the story and altogether found it charming.

Dreary

Sorry. Only got half way through this one and returned it. It's morbid, dreary and depressing. Give it a miss.
