it was ok
bookshelves: fiction, read-in-2012, read-in-september
Read from September 15 to 18, 2012

** spoiler alert ** The only thing that bumped my review to two stars is my pregnant emotion at the later half of the story.

Being married to a medic I thought this would be a good read. Wrong. So many liberties were taken with real life situations and the medical/legal aspects.

Not to mention how the big accident result isn't even possible. The baby was at least two so she would have been in a convertible carseat so to not strap the seat into the car the baby would been on the floor on the first turn she took. Then factor in the size of a convertible seat and there's no way it could have been ejected from a window. Not possible.

And then on a parental note - the kid ends up in a coma related to an accident while drinking and he gives her a gift days after she wakes up to NYC for her and her BFF without parental supervision???? parenting FAIL
