After hearing a lot about Jodi Picoult, I decided to give one of her books a try. "Plain Truth" was the first one that I had the opportunity to read, and I have to say that I wasn't let down, after all the good things I had heard about her.
I thought the book started out excellent - characters and themes that the average person could relate to and aren't written about normally (a young unwed Amish teenage mother accused of murder). I honestly couldn't stop reading this book from the very first page ... there were subtle hints of the ending, which I didn't guess until the end, an dlots of twists and turns that you don't even see coming.
I will most definitely give some other Jodi Picoult books a try in the future.
