If you haven't read any books by Jodi Picoult, you are missing out in a huge way. I just finished her newest book this morning, Handle With Care, and like all of her books-it did NOT disappoint. Her books are always thought provoking, interesting, and the most entertaining books I've ever read.
Seriously, if she published her grocery list, I would buy it.
I got to meet her in person on Wednesday night, and it was so much fun. I had never been to a book signing before, and I'm so happy that my first experience was with an author I love so much. She was just as funny and real as I thought she'd be-and I had to fight all of my natural instincts not to beg her to have a drink with me! She signed my copy of Handle With Care, and then (even though they said she could only personalize one book) she personalized my copy of My Sister's Keeper for my little sister. It was so sweet of her, and I'm still smiling when I think of how great she was.
Are any of you big Jodi fans? Her books are amazing for discussion because they are always taboo topics that everyone has opinions about.
If you haven't read any of her books, I suggest you RUN to your local store and buy any of them.
I would start with My Sister's Keeper. It's incredible.
