Aside from the murder part, this book describes living with a person with Asperger's so acurately, I felt like they were living in my house. My 20 year old daughter has Aspergers and some of the descriptions were so real that I thought Ms Picoult was talking about her. I'm glad that this book is so popular, because maybe it will shed some light on people like my daughter. Also, the other characters in the book describe what it's like to live with someone who has aspergers. It is very well written and I thorougly enjoyed reading it.

I'd never read a Dennis Lehane book before, but I loved this one so much I'll be reading more. The story kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next and there was no predictability to this story. I was hooked from the minute I started it and I didn't want it to end.
