Anyone who has asked me for a book suggestion has heard me go on and on about Jodi Picoult. Yes, one of her books was made into a movie but that is just the tip of her iceberg of talent!!! I love love love all her books and can reread them without getting bored. This particular book was the first one of hers that I read and I was hooked.
My whole life, I’ve never been on a vacation. I’ve never even left New Hampshire, unless you count the time that we flew to Nebraska – and even you have to admit that sitting in a hospital room for three days watching really old Tom and Jerry cartoons while you get your Pamidronate infusion is nothing like going to a beach or SeaWorld or the Grand Canyon. (jodi picoult, handle with care)
