One day June Nealon was happily anticipating a lifetime of laughter and adventure with her family; the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds. Waiting for justice. Waiting for a miracle to happen. For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens one day that changes everything for him. Now he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's twelve-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes and the rage of a mother who has lost her child. Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerises and enthralls readers with a story of justice, love and redemption.
A man on death row wants to donate his heart so goes to court so he can be killed any other way than lethal injection as this would leave the heart unusable, the only other snag is he wants to donate his heart to the girl whose sister and father he killed.
Although i enjoyed this book it can get a bit far fetched and goes a bit too much into religion for my liking, i did like the way that Jodi brings a character from another book into it. Overall a thought provoking book.
Not to get in the middle of this argument but whoever reads this, here's to you. Why don't we all just mind our own business and whoever wants to call us "children " or "spammers" then let them call us that because I think we all know who's the children around here.
I have enjoyed the 2 books of JP that I read. The first one was Nineteen Minutes and then I read My Sister's Keeper. I am glad that I read Nineteen first, because I found so much sadness in My Sister that I probably would not have been in a hurry to try another. Sometimes I don't want to read a book that breaks my heart.
Well, I'm going back to the drawing board on this Author. I don't know what to make of this Author yet...I'm a first time reader of JP. I loved the way she gives each character their own pages to comunicate their feelings and thoughts. However, what disappointed me was I had the story figured out from the beginning but I kept reading because it was interesting and I was waiting for it to turn out differently. It was a good heart warming story. Maybe I choose one of JP's books that wasn't one of her best. I'm willing to read another one of her books and I'm going to. Maybe, then I'll be able to give a better feedback about the Author.........Banjo
