Reviews

This powerful and affecting novel demonstrates that there are as many truths to a story as there are people to tell it Publishers Weekly Jodi Picoult's novels often focus on lives turned upside down by some terrible event, and it's her way with the small emotional detail that makes them so rewarding Marie Claire The striking thing is Picoult's confidence.
