Okay, it’s been soo long since I’ve updated, but I have been reading. I read another book by Jodi Picoult called The Tenth Circle. She tends to talk about serious topics, and her books can get pretty intense.
Fourteen-year-old Trixie Stone is in love for the first time. She’s also the light of her father, Daniel’s life — a straight-A student; a pretty, popular freshman in high school; a girl who’s always seen her father as a hero. That is, until her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence. Suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family — and herself — seems to be a lie. Could the boyfriend who once made Trixie wild with happiness have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a seemingly mild-mannered comic book artist with a secret tumultuous past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back to protect his family. With THE TENTH CIRCLE, Jodi Picoult offers her most powerful chronicle yet as she explores the unbreakable bond between parent and child, and questions whether you can reinvent yourself in the course of a lifetime — or if your mistakes are carried forever.
I liked this book. I’m not sure I loved it. It was a little violent at times and maybe a little inappropriate with rape. Yes, the book is centered around the main character getting raped. But there is so much more to the story. I would recommend it if you can get past the tough parts. I’d probably recommend any Jodi Picoult book. So, I’d say you can go to the book store, but you don’t have to run.
