I've written about Jodi Picoult books before. I still haven't liked any as much as the first one I read by her. My Sister's Keeper was the first. It spoiled all the rest because I loved it so much.
Jodi Picoult reminds me of a writer I loved growing up. Lurlene McDaniel (I hope I spelt her name correctly). She wrote fiction for young adults. She wrote about social issues and health issues. Jodi Picoult does the same thing, but adult fiction.
This one had definitely had social issues. It was basically a custody battle over an unborn child. Some would say custody, some wouldn't. The ex-wife wanted the fertilized eggs for herself and her wife. Her ex husband, had recently found faith and god. He didn't want her to have them. I already feel like I've said too much. It was good. At times, I was so frustrated at the thick headedness of people. While reading it, I knew how I wanted it to end. I also knew I'd be pretty upset if it didn't end the way I expected.
It ended in a good way.
Now I have to go finish my next book.
