This is the first book I read by Jodi Picoult. I'd heard a lot about it, and the book didn't disappoint. It has ethical dilemma (as many of her books have) in it, which is quite interesting to think about. The book in that sense definately gives food for thought. It's told from multiple characters (as with her other books), though I found some to be slightly more interesting than others. It's a great read if you like contemporary fiction. Her books also have a court theme running through it, there is a court case in the book (so if you really don't like this, don't read this book). The book is well written. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes contemporary fiction.
