“This book was unlike any I've ever read before, full of passages and lines that made you stop, reread and think about the ethical implications of the plot line, it was definitely an interesting read.
I didn't fully enjoy it because at times I felt the book was moving at too slow a pace, but I liked the full array of the viewpoints given by each main character in the book, especially Andrews.
I'm on the fence as to whether or not to pick up one of Jodi Picoults books again but I am intrigued by the book-turned-movie, My Sisters Keeper.”
“Read this a couple of years back also, along with My Sister's Keeper, and this was such a sad but well-told story. A great read for any fans of Jodi Picoult.”KK wrote this review Friday, June 15, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Not her best book, but definitely a fun read. It's easy to get into and pretty fast paced. The ending is satisfactory. If you enjoy the unraveling of Justicer and the circumstances of events within court, this would be a perfect book. ”Mariah wrote this review Thursday, June 14, 2012.

“Delia Hopkins lives in a small town in rural New Hampshire. One day, police officers knock on her door and arrest her father, Andrew, for kidnapping a little girl named Bethany. Andrew is almost immediately extradited to Arizona. Delia and her fiancee Eric, who is also a lawyer, follow him there. Delia learns that she used to be Bethany, and that her father stole her away from her alcoholic mother when she was very young. After Delia's parents got a divorce, Delia lived with her mother. Her mother's boyfriend had been sexually abusing her, which is also one of the reasons that Andrew kidnapped her. Delia has to deal with a personal identity crisis while managing her father's court case. In the end, Andrew is found not guilty and they return to New Hampshire.
This book was very interesting. The plot was unique and special. I have never read another book with even a similar plot. I liked this book very much.”
“This book captured my interest right away, however there are some disturbing scenes in the jail system. Readers should be aware there are some graphic parts throughtout the story.
Deals with alcoholism, jail, family relationships, dysfunctional families”

“I gave this book 4 stars because it was a very well written and interesting book! It was very interesting to read, and it really made you think. I feel like Jodi Piccoult always writes books that explore a risky topic and make you think about how to feel. This book was to exception, I found myself thinking about it for days after I finished it. I enjoyed the characters and really found myself hoping that things would work out for them. It was a good read! ”Brityn Thompson wrote this review Friday, April 6, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
