The Perfect Match

Jodi Picoult
Published 2003
384 Pages
Rating: B+

This book was a gift and I've heard so many great things about this author that I was really excited to start it. I did my research on this book and there were a bunch of mixed reviews so I was kind of nervous that I wouldn't like it. So, I started it on March 13th and finished it on April 13th. It was one of the slowest reads but it was still a great book.
So, on April 13th I was so relieved to have finally finished this book and so sad because it was over. I learned a lot about stuff having to do with the law and it was quite interesting. Some parts were a little disturbing, but I've read worse. Besides, if you read this book and know what it's about, then you really shouldn't be complaining.
This book starts off with Caleb Frost, Nina Frost and Nathaniel Frost. Nina is a lawyer that works with child molestation cases and sees everyday how easily these molesters get off without punishment. Usually the child isn't competent to testify because they get nervous in front of the judge and whoever else happens to be the room.
One day, Nina's son Nathaniel just stops talking. He is literally unable to talk so after having a few visits to the child psychiatrist she finds out that he was sexually abused. The story goes on from there with the court trials and finding out who was the cause of it. I don't want to say too much about the story because I'll end up giving away spoilers. But, if you're in the mood for something different and exciting, definitely give this book a shot.
PS. This definitely will not be the last of Jodi Picoult books for me.


  1. I love Jodi Picoult, so I'll have to check this one out.

  2. I can't say that it's my favorite book of hers since it's only my first, but if this is one of the least favorites (as I've read) then I can only imagine what the other ones are like.


Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
