I've always loved to read and enjoy a wide variety of genres. My favorites tend to be humor, mysteries, thrillers, chick lit, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian, young adult, children's books and most combinations of those previously mentioned.
I have read Jodi Picoult's books before but I still can't get over how intensely they affect me. She writes about such controversial topics and she writes them well. This story was about bullying that led to a terrible school shooting. It's a terrible, tragic story but it's not at all simple. As always, the author keeps you guessing until the very end. Having children of my own has made me even more sensitive to this issue. School shootings should not even exist.
