Another heart-wrenching book by Jodi Piccoult. How delighted I was to discover that I had an unread book by one of my favorite authors. This one deals with the Amish community and what happens when their faith is juxtaposed with the American legal system. It makes you think about what forgiveness really means.
Great book! The only thing that I was just a little disappointed about was the Prologue.... You basically know the who done it, with what and it what room all in the first page of the book. Which is funny since Jodi reference's the game Clue several times throughout the book. There were still enough twists and turns to keep the reader captivated from beginning to the very last page!!
"You can't look back- you just have to put the past behind you, and find something better in your future."
Loved this. Didn't realize that it is about a school shooting until I started. Just taught one of the toughest weeks following Sandy Hook, a shooting in Clackamas Mall up the road, and the end of the Mayan calendar. Wasn't sure if I would be able to finish it, but it was worth it--every page unfolding layers. A great read.
