My all-time favorite author!
I enjoyed this book and the way Jodi Picoult writes. She tells the stories from different characters' points of view. Time goes forward on one character and backwards on another. Very well put together, creating a web and a whole story. The truth appearing somewhere in between.
Awesome author. Compelling & raw. Humpback Whales was my least favorite of her books.

I didn't think much of Songs of the Humpback Whale, but the others are good. Love Jodi Picoult and have her latest, written with her daughter, waiting on my shelf
