If you get a chance you have to pick up a book by this author. She like to write on controversial topics. I have read one her books that was made into a T.V. movie, "My Sister's Keeper." Definitely a two hanky read. I wanted to let you know about a contest going on at Heather's blog Book Addiction. You can win a new Picoult title, "Change of Heart" which has gotten great reviews. Good luck and let me know if you win!
