    The Hartes and the Golds have been neighbors for 18 years and are very close. So when Chris and Emily's friendship reaches the next level, nobody is surprised. Then one night, the hospital calls. Seventeen-year-old Emily is dead - shot in the head by a gun Chris took from his father's cabinet. One bullet remains in the chamber, and Chris tells of his suicide pact with Emily. But the police have questions, and soon Chris is on trial for murder.

    Patti says: "Getting Repetitive"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This was my least favorite Jodi Picoult book. It went on too long and the story was disappointing. I struggled to find any redeeming characters in this book.

    A very engaging tale about a book lover for book lovers. It made me want to re-read some of my favorite classics. I didn't want this book to end!
