Customer reviews

If only I had read some of the other people's reviews before deciding to buy this book. I just assumed that Ms. Picoult always would write amazing books.

I was wrong.

This title wasn't bad perse, and maybe if you have never read another of Picoult's works you will find it a pleasant enough read.

If on the other hand, you have read other books by the same author, then I would not recommend this title as a good buy.
