There are a few things about Jodi Picoult that I am almost sure of: She likes handsome men, wants to be a lawyer in her next life and watches a lot of CNN. If you read her books, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
I just finished her book Handle with Care and I think it may be the saddest thing I’ve ever read. It’s a story about a little girl named Willow who has osteogenesis imperfecta, or brittle bone disease. And of course there is a lawsuit and much family drama involved. Although I know this book is fiction, it’s based on a disease that is very real. It really made me question myself. What would I do if I had a baby born with such a life altering disability? But, it also made me see that mothers love their children no matter what, and a disease like Willow’s didn’t stop her from being a beautiful person with a lot to give.
Survey says… this is definitely one of my favorite Picoult books!
