Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors, and I found this book so incredibly brave and absolutely beautifully told.
While it made for uncomfortable reading at times, Ruth’s story is sensitively told and also incredibly appealing. Of course you have to suspend your disbelief a bit for the end (it’s a book, not real life!), the story, the characters, the plot and moral question are so relevant and emotive I couldn’t put it down.
Kudos to Jodi Picoult for tackling such a difficult subject.
