it was ok

Welp,let me start by saying that I'm a huge Jodi Piccoult fan. She's an excellent writer and has captures the voice of her characters beautifully. Her device is to stir the pot, make you think, and examine difficult situations where you find yourself sympathizing with people you'd never believe was possible.

But it appears that Piccoult has gone the way of mega popular writers that bang out books once a year for the sake of, well, banging out books once a year. The formula she always uses (and that I've liked very much in her other novels) is still here, with a moral dilemma and child at the story's center. But the Green Mile rip-off and contrived subplots aren't convincing, and the whole time I found myself saying "Hey, that's a story that's already been written".

Still better than most books out there, but disappointing for sure.
