A friend recently mentioned the author Jodi Picoult to me. When I was browsing my local library looking for something new to read, I remembered the name and so I grabbed two books off the shelf–there were at least 10 different titles to choose from. The first book that I read was called Plain Truth. I thought it was just fantastic. I got sucked into the story within the first few pages, and had a hard time focusing on anything else until I’d finished.
I’m currently reading Keeping Faith. Although it didn’t grab my attention as quickly as the other, now that I’m a bit into it, I’m just as sucked in. (I find the main character, Mariah, a bit less sympathetic than Ellie was in Plain Truth, and I think that’s mostly because I relate more to Ellie. And Mariah is growing on me.)
