This is the first Jodi Picoult book I have read. I found the plot captivating and suspenseful. I must admit that when I found out the real reason why Anna started her lawsuit I was a little swayed with my thoughts of the book. The conclusion was something I never expected but I found the last couple of pages abrubt. All in all it was a good book and I look forward to reading more Jodi Picoult books.
