What has happened to their gregarious child, Nina and Caleb frantically wonder. The answer becomes clear as Nathaniel exhibits signs of having been molested, but only he knows the identity of his abuser. Using American Sign Language, which he learned from his therapist, he eventually leads Nina to a shocking answer.
Nina, who has spent her career attempting to protect children from abusers, flies into a rage so intense that she barely recognizes herself. A mesmerizing courtroom drama then plays out.
This is not an ordinary book about a run-of-the-mill trial. It is filled with twists and turns, and all the while, the Frost family is tested. Will Nina, Caleb and Nathaniel exist as a family after the long emotional ordeal comes to an end? And what will that end look like?
As she always does, Jodi Picoult makes me think. In PERFECT MATCH, she tackles an uncomfortable subject head-on and in a well-written, thoroughly researched book, she makes me wonder to what lengths I would go to protect my child.
I only gave it three stars because of the main character, Nina Frost, the most hot-headed person you have ever come accross.
When she finds out her five year old son has been molested, she goes off the rails in her actions, hurting all those around her who love her. There are quite a few mitigating reasons for her actions, but the way she reacted every time aggravated me to the extreme.
Apart from that, the book is a page turner, moving fast in a plot that twists and turns when you least expect it and well written like all of this author' s novels. I just wish I could have liked Nina Frost more and not judged her so harshly. But there again non of us know what our reactions will be and what we are capable of under severe circumstances.
This one was gripping, tension-filled but not scary. A page-turner with a bit of romance but not at all what I'd call a chick-flick. Actually, I love romances but men call them chick flicks, I don't.
The premise of the book is something you would read on the news & it is realistic. A courtroom drama, a family drama, a drama about a mother's love for her son & the actions any one could relate to. Makes you wonder what YOU would do if faced with the main character's dilemna.
You'll be very glad you read this book. I like to re-read books, maybe a couple of years later when they seem to be new but this book is unforgettable so I don't think I'll ever re-read it as a new book...but I am sure glad to have read it now! Now on to a new Jodi Picoult novel!
