"At the heart of Perfect Match lie the true emotions of motherhood, with all the contradictions and intensity… It is impossible not be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong."

—The Washington Post

My thoughts

Picoult is not for every reader. She deals with the realities of life in most of her novels. In this one, she talks about a lawyer who had to deal with her child being molested. It took me only two days to complete this book - yes, it's that engaging.


What happens when you do all the right things for all the wrong reasons? As an assistant district attorney in York County, Maine, Nina Frost prosecutes the sort of crimes that tear families apart. She helps clients navigate their way through a nightmare – even though the legal system is not always the faultless compass they want and need it to be. She learns that the easiest way to cross this devastating minefield time and time again is to offer compassion, battle fiercely for justice, and keep her emotional distance.

But when Nina and her husband Caleb discover that their five-year-old son Nathaniel has been sexually abused, that distance is impossible to maintain.
