Review: The Pact



The Pact by Jodi Picoult

As you all know, I absolutely adore Picoult's books, but I try to spread them out in my reading so I can appreciate each one individually (and not run out of her titles too fast!)

This is another stunning novel from one of my favorite writers. This novel focuses on the story of Chris and Emily...destined to be lovers from the moment they were born, now in their teens and still as close as they ever were. Best friends, lovers and confidants, and everyone knows it.

Yet, something in Emily is broken, and she sees only one way out - a promise with Chris to take their own lives.

The gunshot is on the first page, and the rest of the novel jumps from present day to the past, and weaves together the story of these two teenagers, their families, and their future.

A fantastic, absorbing read - highly recommended!
