Book Review

Book Review: A Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

I like all the Jodi Picoult books I've read so far, although this one didn't quite capture me as much as most of hers do. Jodi has a terrific ability in developing character and she's not afraid to address difficult topics, such as this in Perfect Match.

Perfect Match is about a working mother who is faced with numerous emotions after learning her 5 year old son was sexually assaulted. Nina Frost is a DA, and she knows the legal system doesn't work in favor of the victim in sexual abuse cases. Her son is clearly traumatized, and Nina will do anything she can to prevent him from re-living the horror by testifying on the witness stand.

Very good plot twists and turns, and great character development. I give this book 4 stars!
