Book Review - The Pact: A Love Story by Jodi Picoult

Just finished reading The Pact: A Love Story by Jodi Picoult and as always she doesn't disappoint. I started reading this book last week and finished by the pool yesterday (which is becoming a trend). Again this book kept me very engaged and wanteing to see what was going to happen next. The storyline is like a modern-day twist on Romeo and Juliet.

"Until the phone calls came at three o'clock on a November morning, the Golds and their neighbors, the Hartes, had been inseparable. It was no surprise to anyone when their teenage children, Chris and Emily, began showing signs that their relationship was moving beyond that of lifelong friends. But now seventeen-year-old Emily is dead—shot with a gun her beloved and devoted Chris pilfered from his father's cabinet as part of an apparent suicide pact—leaving two devastated families stranded in the dark and dense predawn, desperate for answers about an unthinkable act and the children they never really knew. "

I love her books. Have you read her book Plain Truth? One of my faves. She did a book reading in my city and like a ding dong I thought "I've got plenty of time to buy my ticket." She sold out and I lost out.

You forgot to mention that you're likely to cry through almost the entire book. And, if you're reading on a plane (as I was) that could be embarrassing.
