I read it again because I love it. What would you do if your 5 year old son was abused, and the only way his abuser could be brought to justice was if your son testified? Having to face the man who hurt him in front of a room of people staring at him? Picoult is good at finding a question with no reasonable answer.
If you like Picoult, read this one. It's one of the best and keeps you interested for the entirety of the story.

When her own son is abused by their local priest, Nina takes the law into her own hands because she knows the system isn't keyed to benefit the victim. She shoots the priest and is imprisoned.
