This book was so powerful. Jodi Picoult has the power to evoke so many feelings relating to her stories. Throughout reading this, I found myself angry, heart-broken and relieved at different moments. This book had me questioning what I would do in the same situation. It is amazing how accurate she is able to capture the human condition and how one event can create a domino effect into the rest of your life. A very good read. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a book that will provoke you to question your own ethical dilemmas.

The pace of "Perfect Match" was good, and the narrative structure interesting and useful as a way to share the perspectives of the family members dealing with the great horror and sadness of the abuse. I found the characters believable and although many people wouldn't agree with Nina taking the law into her own hands, this is what made this such a good book. A little predictable in the beginning, but just when I thought I had it figured out, Picoult proved me wrong! The various surprises sprinkled throughout the book add to its depth and mystery.

I stopped reading very early on. The subject matter is just too much. I love Jodi Piccoult books and thought I would like this one as I have all the others, child sexual abuse stories are not stories to be read for leisure and I read for pleasure, this just could not be considered that. If you can handle this subject matter then I am sure you will like it.

This book deals with the emotional and ethical issues of child molestation and how one family dealt with this. What a great book. I recently found this author and plan to read each of her books.

One of my favorites from my favorite author. A story about one of every parent's nightmare, and of how tragedy can effect every other relationship. Couldn't put it down.

I thought that this was a great read that I had a hard time putting down. The plot twists in ways that I didn't expect, all the way to the end of the book, and the characters were definitely the kind that you could relate to and understand. My only complaints is that it does get a little annoying that this author has so many stories with mothers being portrayed as a bit crazed and selfish and that in a time of crisis her marriage becomes at risk with someone moving out of the home. Other than that, I'm totally addicted to this author's stories and this one was no exception.
