This is the first book I've found of Jodi's that isn't for the faint hearted. It was certainly a page turner.
The story revolves around a little boy called Nathan, and his parents, his mum being a defence prosecutor or something like that. He's a happy toddler, who's speaking away, when suddenly he goes silent, grumpy, and uncooperative. His parents are desperately worried, and try slowly but surely to teach him sign language, and various trips to the doctors reveal in a shocking way that their precious son has been abused. Then he signs the word "father", at first making everyone around him think that his own dad had done it. Then it's revealed not to be him, but a Father, as in a priest.
The story snowballs from there, where the mum takes matters into her own hands, and hands up being in the wrong section of the court she's used to. There are many twists & turns, and lots of scientific dialogue about DNA, bone marrow transplants - which went straight over my head - and eventually lead to what really happened.
It is a harrowing story, and ultimately shocking. Sure, it is practically all set in a court, but for me, it is probably the best book yet by Jodi, as it's had a lasting effect on me. However, not something I read again. Definitely pick this one up first. But not for the faint hearted.

    Awful

    I've read other Picoult books and enjoyed them. I didn't even bother finishing this one. About 100 pages from the end, I couldn't stand it any longer, skipped to the last page ? and am so glad I didn't waste any more of my time. No redemption. Awful people. Terrible message. In a word ? YUK.

    Don┬┐t waste your time

    This is one unbelievable bad book. I can¿t decide what is worse: underdeveloped characters, ridiculous story line, scientifically impossible explanations (the death of a cat). I have to say that double twist with BMT donor- recipient half-brother story was my favorite. It is definitely worse than cable TV shows. The only reason I finished this book was to see if it actually ever gets better. And it didn¿t.

    Totally Unsympathetic Heroine

    The only reason I finished this book was to see whether the author ever made the mother likeable. I was disappointed. I could have cared less about Nina Frost and the more I read the less I liked her. The jumping from character to character only compounded a very bad book.
