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.

    You can always count on Jodi Picoult to give you a good twist at the end of every book.

    This was a great book. It really makes you think about what you would do if you were in the same situation.

    This book is amazingly told from many different character perspectives. It is full of twists and turns that are completely unexpected. Picoult does a great job of keeping the reader entranced in this story.

    Oh Crap

    The beginning was completly insane, the middle was even more insane, and at the end you go absolutly insane from the twist. So another great Picoult.
