Hey all! Every now and then, I do a book review for my fellow avid readers out there and it’s about that time. For those of you who don’t know, I love Jodi Picoult novels. They always keep me on my toes because you never can predict what’s going to happen next. This book is the perfect example. If you didn’t know already, Picoult writes her book from the perspectives of each of the main characters. Each chapter is someone else’s perspective of what’s happening, which I personally think is genius. I think that’s one of the reasons why her writing is so great. Not to mention, this book is also New York Times Bestseller ;). I started reading this in June and I would’ve finished it sooner BUT life took over. I finally finished it and I had to share it with you! I’m not going to spoil too much of the greatness but I will talk about the plot basics.
Nina Frost is a prosecutor who’s world is turned upside down when she finds out that her 5 year old son, Nathaniel, has been sexually abused and left traumatized. As a prosecutor, she knows how flawed the justice system is so she inevitably decides to get justice by her own means. That is basically as much as I can tell you without giving away too much! Now if you’re thinking you know exactly how the book is going to end already, YOU DON’T. I thought I did like 4 times while reading and I was wrong. If you’re a fan of suspense and drama novels, this book is definitely for you. Also, it may possibly pull at your heart strings.
