I was not interested in the premise of this book, I was not interested in the characters in this book, I am surprised that I finished this book. It was very Jodi Picoult--a moral dilemma, a family divided, a court of law. I found it pretty boring, because it was clear from the beginning how it was going to end, and I STILL stayed up an hour past bedtime to finish it.
Ms. Picoult is sneaky like that. She doesn't write anything like mystery novels, but there's always one or two secrets that the characters keep from the reader until the end of the book. And I need to know people's secrets! It's a compulsion! So I have to finish her books once I start them, but darn it, I don't have to like them. Especially when the secrets turn out to be not-so deep and dark, as was the case here.
