Editor’s Note

“A sensational debut...”

Suspenseful & tragic, Picoult’s breakout love story comes to a stunning crescendo amidst impossible circumstances.
Scribd Editor

From Jodi Picoult, one of the most powerful writers in contemporary fiction, comes a riveting, timely, heartbreaking, and terrifying novel of families in anguish -- and friendships ripped apart by inconceivable violence. Until the phone calls came at 3:00 A.M. on a November morning, the Golds and their neighbors, the Hartes, had been inseparable. It was no surprise to anyone when their teenage children, Chris and Emily, began showing signs that their relationship was moving beyond that of lifelong friends. But now seventeen-year-old Emily has been shot to death by her beloved and devoted Chris as part of an apparent suicide pact -- leaving two devastated families stranded in the dark and dense predawn, desperate for answers about an unthinkable act and the children they never really knew.

I liked that, as in most of her other novels, the ending is unpredictable. I do feel, however, that she is beginning to recycle some of her characters, such as the attorney and his investigator sidekick.

What an engrossing book-loved it! Will look for more of her books.more
I give this book a single star for the time the author spent on writing it...otherwise, this is one of the most uninteresting book I have read in a long time. It is too long and the story does not justify such length. I rarely skim-read but barely few chapters in the book, I was skimming the end, wondering if the book is worth a read. It is not. There was barely any worthy twist in the book and whatever information I learned in the beginning were only repeated at the end. It is an Unsatifying book. I will not recommend it.more
