I am a voracious reader and the captain of my women's book club. Thanks to audible I often get to read at least eight books a month.

    One of New Jersey’s seemingly innumerable quiet seaside towns, Toms River became the unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the annals of toxic dumping. A town that would rather have been known for its Little League World Series champions ended up making history for an entirely different reason: a notorious cluster of childhood cancers scientifically linked to local air and water pollution.

    Story

    When I was a little girl we drove through the town of Tom's River nearly every summer Saturday on our way to go crabbing at Island Heights. Adulthood had me moving around the country and I lost touch with the town, the one with the charming name. And then I found this book. Not only do we get a great telling of the story, an understanding of a most interesting legal process, a sense of the pain of aftermath, and finally we are left with the question, what if anything can society reasonably do. For those readers who might be interested, I would happily host a blog to revel in a full fledged discussion of the book's many angles. To Dan Fagin, thanks for a fantastic experience.
