The Pact: A Love Story by Jodi Picoult

This is a story about an apparent suicide pact between two teens who are in love.

Oh my gosh, I’m totally in love with Jodi Picoult. I’ve read My Sister’s Keeper and Picture Perfect also by Picoult, but The Pact is by far the most amazing. I couldn’t put it down. She portrays the teen mindset really well. You’re pulled through the different emotions and viewpoints of the characters. But it’s not a crazy perspective changing book. Which I like. It was amazing. You really need to go get it.

From Jodi Picoult, one of the most powerful writers in contemporary fiction, comes a riveting, timely, heartbreaking, and terrifying novel of families in anguish — and friendships ripped apart by inconceivable violence. Until the phone calls came at 3:00 A.M. on a November morning, the Golds and their neighbors, the Hartes, had been inseparable. It was no surprise to anyone when their teenage children, Chris and Emily, began showing signs that their relationship was moving beyond that of lifelong friends. But now seventeen-year-old Emily has been shot to death by her beloved and devoted Chris as part of an apparent suicide pact — leaving two devastated families stranded in the dark and dense predawn, desperate for answers about an unthinkable act and the children they never really knew.

I’m not sure why I picked up the book. Normally not my type. But I’m so glad! I think it’s a movie too. But I’m not sure I’ll watch it. I don’t want to ruin the book. Since it’s so amazing. I could not put the book down. And the end is kinda surprising.

I also really like her books because everything is so unexpected. If you’ve read my sister’s keeper you know what I’m talking about. Run to the bookstore!
