Ten-year-old Patrick O'Brien is a natural target at school. Shy, dyslexic, and small for his age, he tries to hide his first-grade reading level from everyone: from his classmates, from the grandfather who cares for him, and from the teachers who are supposed to help him. But the real trouble begins when Patrick is accused of attacking a school aide. The aide promptly quits and sues the boy, his family, and the school district. Patrick's grandfather turns to the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio for help, and Mary DiNunzio is on the case.

What did you love best about Damaged?

Love the Mary DiNunzio stories...Mary demonstrates her compassion about a little dyslexic boy who is abused and bullied at school cause of his dyslexia; Patrick then loses his dear grandfather tragically which is the only family he has left. Mary steps in to keep him out of care of Child Protective Services where he'd become a lost little boy because of his disability. And in doing so, she becomes a suspect in a twisted plot. Mary demonstrates tenacity and compassion for this little boy who simply has no one else to help him!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Mary DiNunzio and her friend, Judy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Just the compassion and commitment Mary showed in protecting the rights of this little boy and fighting to clear little Patrick's name who was unjustly accused of a horrible crime.

Any additional comments?

A definite audio book that you just won't want to stop listening to!

Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls she's been getting - until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work, then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move. The shadowboxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized, and she has to fight for something a lot more important than partnership: her life.

Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to "rescuing" a family from a nonexistent gunman.

Where does Leaving Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So many twists and turns...just when you thought you knew where the book was headed, Jodi Picoult surprises! Excellent as usual....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment that Emory began to trust the mystery man and gave in to her "urges".
