Book review: The Pact by Jodi Picoult


I'm in the middle of a pretty good book... The Pact is the story of two teenagers who grow up next door to one another from birth, their parents are the best of friends and have always expected that their children's friendship will blossom into love which it does.

The book jumps from both Chris and Emily's perspective as well as both sets of parents - it deals with a suicide pact gone wrong and the aftermath (as well as what has lead up to the central moment). If anyone has ever learned devastating news or lost a loved one then they know what it can do to a person as well as a family and I thought that The Pact was unbelievably realistic.

This was made into a Lifetime movie a couple of years ago but I missed seeing it. I checked Netflix and they don't have it... so I am going to search Amazon and buy it.
