Synopsis

Perfect Match
In the course of her everyday work, career-driven assistant district attorney Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters and works determinedly to ensure that a legal system with too many loopholes keeps these criminals behind bars. But when her own five-year-old son, Nathaniel, is traumatized by a sexual assault, Nina and her husband, Caleb, a quiet and methodical stone mason, are shattered, ripped apart by an enraging sense of helplessness in the face of a futile justice system that Nina knows all too well. In a heartbeat, Nina's absolute truths and convictions are turned upside down, and she hurtles toward a plan to exact her own justice for her son—no matter the consequence, whatever the sacrifice.

Second Glance
Second Glance, an eerie and engrossing work, delves into a virtually unknown chapter of American history—Vermont's eugenics project of the 1920s and 30s—to provide a compelling study of the things that come back to haunt us—literally and figuratively. Do we love across time, or in spite of it?

My Sister's Keeper
My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

Jodi Picoult always surprises me by making difficult subjects pallatable and simple subjects engrossing. Her characters come to life on the page. The relationships feel legitimate and not contrived. These stories make you stop, think and then read some more. Right away

A definite page turner. She makes you feel like you could be in the character's situation, and wonder, "what would I do?". Jodi Picoult always writes easy to read books, but I always feel like I want to keep reading..even after the book is done!! You will not be disappointed in ANY of her books!!

Jodi Picoult is masterful, creative and knowledgeable writer. Her work never fails to entertain, shock or move her readers. My Sister's Keeper was the first novel I read by her. After I was done reading it, I couldn't stop thinking of it. As is the case with all of her novels. She is one of my favorite authors and I will always look forward to reading her new work.
