    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "predictable"
    Overall

    Jodi used to be one of my favorite authors. Now, it seems that all of her characters are becoming interchangeable from one book to the next. The ending of this book is so predictable...I had it figured out immediately.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Suze says: "Mesmerizing"
    "One of the best books I NEVER read"
    Overall

    Jodi never seems to forget that her readers are wise. This book will keep even the avid reader intrigued and surprised...a must read/listen.

    Known for tackling hot-button issues in her timely fiction, Jodi Picoult has sold millions of books. Change of Heart explores capital punishment and organized religion through the tale of death row inmate Shay Bourne. Bourne's last request is to donate his heart to his victim's ailing sister. The situation gets more complicated when Bourne begins performing miracles in full view of witnesses - including his Catholic spiritual advisor.

    Sue says: "Amazing"
    "Stunning"
    Overall

    This, by far, is one of the best books I NEVER read. At first listen, it was oddly similar to Steven King's book "The Green Mile". However, instead of going to the macabre like King...it set forth on a journey that left me questioning my own faith, morals, beliefs, and biases. I would recommend this read (listen) to most; especially those in a book club. This work brings many hours of discussion to the table. A must have.
