Perfect Match - Jodi Picoult

How far would you go?

You are an assistant district attorney... Every day you help put behind bars the perps who destroy lives of kids by abusing them... You will even consider putting the kid on the stand if that's what it takes to avenge the horrors they have faced... Your aim in life is to make every child ever to walk the street safe...

But what do you do when the child who is abused is your own? Will you put him on the stand and make him relive the horror over again? Will you wait for the justice system to take its course and avenge your son or will you serve justice yourself? How far would YOU go?

The Perfect Match is the story of assistant district attorney Nina Frost, her husband Caleb and their 5 year old son Nathaniel... When suddenly the bubbly energetic child stops talking, Nina and Caleb take him to a paediatricianto try and figure out what is wrong... The truth unravels as they find out what the child wishes to say... He has been abused... How far will Nina go to save her child?

This is the third Jodi Picoult book I have read and I have to say I love her style of writing... it just touches you so intensely... I shan't write anything more about the story.. just that this story has moved me and I had to write about it...
