The Pact

By Jodi Picoult

The Harts and the Golds have been neighbors for over 20 years; their children, Emily and Chris, have been inseparable since infancy. Emily and Chris' friendship blossoms into romance when they are in their early teens, which both families celebrate. Yet, Emily has a secret, one that she cannot tell her parents or Chris, her best friend and true love. A secret that threatens to destroy her. One terrible night, Emily is killed, in what Chris explains is a suicide pact. With conflicting evidence, Chris is put on trial for murder and the two families are torn apart by the ensuing drama. Suspenseful until the very end, The Pact, is an edge-of-your-seat drama about unconditional love, friendship, and the power of truth. I laughed. I cried. I was amazed and astounded. This is by far the best Jodi Picoult novel I have read yet. A must read!!! If you enjoy this book, join me for the 3rd Monday Book Discussion Group on February 18th at 2pm.
