Publisher's Summary

For 18 years, the Hartes and the Golds have lived next door to each other, sharing everything from Chinese food to chicken pox to carpool duty. Parents and children alike are best friends – so it's no surprise that in high school Chris and Emily's friendship blossoms into something more. They've been soul mates since they were born.

When the midnight calls come in from the hospital, no one is prepared for the appalling truth: Emily is dead at 17 from a gunshot wound to the head as part of an apparent suicide pact. The gun holds a single unspent bullet that Chris tells police he intended for himself, but a local detective has doubts. And the Hartes and Golds, in a single terrifying moment, must face every parent's worst fear: do we ever really know our children at all?

What the Critics Say

"The novelist displays an almost uncanny ability to enter the skins of her troubled young protagonists." (New York Times)

    Story
    "Boring - Boring - Boring!!!!"
    Would you try another book written by Jodi Picoult or narrated by Megan Dodds?

    I have always enjoyed Jodi Picoult books, but this is just dull, very little story line and the one that is there is just not believable. Megan Dodds narration only seems to make it even more boring. Give it a miss and Jodi you need a wakeup call!!!!


    Has The Pact put you off other books in this genre?

    No as I have read and enjoyed Jodi's books before.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She made a very uninteresting story line even more boring.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I had the feeling that Jodi was writing for the sake of writing, It didn't feel like her heart was in this one. I have over 500 books from Audible and this one is on my top 5 most forgettable and wish I hadn't wasted my time list.

    "I cried listening to the book!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes this book was good but I felt it finished to quickly


    What other book might you compare The Pact to, and why?

    this book could be compared to any Jodi Picoult book


    Was The Pact worth the listening time?

    Yes definately - but it seemed to finish all of a sudden without a proper ending

    "Powerful"

    Another compelling story from Jodi Picoult. She writes these powerful courtroom dramas so well I find it hard to switch them off. It's a shame that this version is abridged.
