It was interesting but too much going on in the storyline....kidnapping, pregnancy. finding long
lost mom, alcoholism, child molested , and the prison bits regarding Andrew....this book didn't
quite do it for me....enjoyed her other book MY SISTER'S KEEPER

Very few authors can create characters vivid enough for me to follow through changes in voice, but I don't have any problems remembering who's who and what happened previously in Jodi Picoult's books. Again, she addresses social issues and how all people affected feel and respond, so that you feel you understand the issue from all points of view.

Jodi Picoult never disappoints me. The themes of her stories are varied and each book is a pleasant surprise which takes the ader through many an emotion and ends in a perfect finish.

Not one of my favorite Jodi Picoult books, but still had a compelling story line and character development.

Very well written. Couldn't put the book down. Not sure if I like the ending though.

The plot of the novel is quite mysterious and sort of scary, but the story itself is very interesting and ends happily.

Another wonderful page turner from Jodi Piccoult. It was as if I was watching a movie. Could not put it down. Jodi Piccoult has yet to disappoint her readers.

I enjoyed this book. It was well-written and the characters were well explored. I only wanted to know more about what happened to the main characters at the end of the story though.

Lyrical and poignant. Beautifully written in all points of view. Did find the back and forth somewhat interrupted the story line, but the depth of informations and insight was invaluable.
