ve read As a parent, the book really made me question my morals and how far I d be willing to go to protect my own children May contain mild spoilers Trixie is the fourteen year old daughter of Daniel and Laura Stone Laura is a college professor and Daniel writes comics for a living He s basically a stay at home dad and has a strong bond with Trixie Daniel s dealing with the fact that she s getting older and pulling away from himandand he yearns for the bond they once had This is something many parents fear, including me, as our children get older Trixie s boyfriend Jason has just broken up with her and she s not taking it so well Already, she s cut herself and attempted suicide while her parents deal with their own issues and they don t see it happening Her friend Zephyr is having a party with a lot of other students invited, including Jason, and she ll do whatever it takes to make him jealous to get him to pay attention to her She wants him back and because of this, she lies to her father, telling him it s just a sleepover, and puts herself into a dangerous situation This isn t a typical party, it s basically a sex game party and Trixie is extremely vulnerable This part of the book made me really cringe because she acted like an idiot and did things no fourteen year old should be doing At this point you can really tell how mixed up she is She heads home in the wee hours of the night and Daniel finds her in the bathroom She s on the floor, disheveled with makeup all over her face, and tells Daniel, Daddy, he raped me While Trixie is dealing with the social repercussions at school after accusing Jason of raping her, Daniel and Laura have their own problems to deal with What took Laura so long to get to the hospital that night Why didn t she answer the phone at the office Daniel is beside himself with what s happened to Trixie and has his own secrets from the past Not only that, many questions arise Is Trixie telling the truth and was she really raped that night Is Jason really the evil kid everyone is making him out to be As with most of Jodi Picoult s books, there are twists and turns throughout the narrative that leave you guessing the truth until the end.A few of the aspects I loved in this book was that Dante s Inferno is referenced throughout and the comics add a nice touch because all the characters go through hell in this story until the final end I did enjoy this one as much as the first time I read it, but I believe I overlooked a few things when I read this over a decade ago While Daniel and Trixie s characters are very well developed, especially with visiting back to Daniel s childhood including the Alaskan culture he was raised in, Laura and Seth s characters aren t very developed and the ending was so abrupt and sort of left uncertain A few parts of the narrative are a little far fetched as well, but for the most part, it s believable Regardless, I m so glad that I reread this because I couldn t remember a lot of what happened and it felt really fresh to me Up until now, I haven t reread a lot of my books, but leave it to Jodi Picoult to inspire me to do just that 5 Fourteen Year Old Trixie Stone Is In Love For The

Grisham, Nora Roberts, etc are the McDonald s of writers I would probably equate Jodi Picoult with Applebee s Reading a Jodi Picoult novel is like casual dining You pretty much know what you re going to get, and you don t expect anything life altering But it s entertaining, it s atmospheric, and it certainly feels at least a bitupscale.This novel is about a family a mom, a So if one were to

Applebee s Reading a Jodi Picoult novel is like casual dining You pretty much know what you re going to get, and you don t expect anything life altering But it s entertaining, it s atmospheric, and it certainly feels at least a bitupscale.This novel is about a family a mom, a dad, a daughter, and how they react to the daughter s rape And also the dad s past in Alaska And also the mom s affair And also the towns reaction to the rape And also a sled dog race in Alaska And there s also a graphic novel, and you learn a little about Dante Basically, there is a LOT going on in this novel I felt like the author tried to cram a few too many things into this novel, and in the end was unable to tie up everything nicely A lot of things just got sort of thrown in there there are themes and characters and locations running amok But overall, I enjoyed this book You ll get caught up in the story, and it is well written other than the overkill of plot lines This is a decent read and I would recommend it Maybe you should take it with you and read it while waiting for drinks at Applebee s Although I had read quite a number of Jodi Picoult books, I was doubtful about this one because it included a lot of the material in comic strip format and I do not like comics or graphic novels at all I needn t have worried though, because the story reads just as well just sticking to the text In fact, especially after the tedious writing and despicable characters of Mercy, I was really surprised by some good storytelling and quite well rounded characterisations The research Picoult had put Although

good storytelling and quite well rounded characterisations The research Picoult had put into modern adolescent sexual behaviour and into the lives of native Alaskans really enlivened the book The only point that was a bit of a downer for me was that the ending was guessable and dealt with in matter of a few lines when I would have liked it to go on a bitPerhaps that is the mark of a good read when you want it to go on a bit This one really fascinated me I loved the aspect that brings to question does no really have to be said for it to be rape Then you had the whole messed up family aspect as an undertone Overall, the characters were mostly likeable but it is the debate of the themes of the book that really keep you grasping for the next page On to my next Jodi Picoult book in my marathon Harvesting the Heart The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult is based on a fourteen year old girl, Trixie Stone, who is madly in love for the first time with an upper classman named Jason Underhill, who

girl, Trixie Stone, who is madly in love for the first time with an upper classman named Jason Underhill, who happens to be the star hockey player of the town and well known by everyone Sadly though, Jason doesn t love Trixie he merely only likes her Because of this fact, after he broke off their relationship, he was the only one to move on Trixie became depressed, desperate, and determined To relieve her emotional pain, she began cutting, which is a sign of deep depression Also, she created a barrier between her and her dad, just as Jason had done with her But after Trixie was convinced by her best friend Zephyr that she should make Jason jealous by hitting on other guys and appearing to be easy, she lies to her dad by telling him that she is staying the night with Zephyr and that Zephyr s mom will be there When in reality, Zephyr s mom is out of town and they are having a party full of guys, including Jason That night after giving oral sex to countless guys and playing strip poker, she finds herself alone with Jason After realizing he doesn t really want her back, but instead just wants to be friends with benefits, she tries to get away from him Failing to do so, he rapes her Making the right decision, she chooses not to stay the night with Zephyr Instead, she goes home in the middle of the night and places herself in the bathroom floor, where her father finds her crying and shaking violently Then, she tells him Daddy, he raped me After that night, Trixie s life turns upside down They press charges and await a trial but how can there be a trial if the suspect winds up dead What happens next I can t say, but you can find out But I do have to say, things don t always turn out the way you expect them to Sadly though, The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult has been challenged from a few highschools across the world because because it includes suicide and also sexual content, such as date rape and adultery But in my opinion, it shouldnt be challenged nor banned because Picoult is not encouraging teens to do negative things but instead to send out a message Do we really ever know anyone as well as we think we do We can t keep Jodi Picoult on the shelves in the bookstore where I work I picked this one up just to see what all the fuss is about and before I knew what was happening I was a hundred pages into it Picoult s great strength seems to lie in

Apparently, that was too much to hope for.Eventually I did managed to drag myself to the end of this book at which point I was left feeling resentful over the time I wasted reading it WHY do I read these books They are poorly written REALLY poorly written Past the point of believability and,importantly, enjoyability The characters are completely one dimensional and interchangable I could have sworn I read this book beforeand then I remembered I very nearly had when I read Nineteen Minutes , and they do nothing but spew these incredibly cliched lines about love and loss and watching your children grow up, or some bullshit Maybe it wouldn t be bullshit if a I ac WHY do I read these books They are poorly written REALLY poorly written Past the point of believability and,importantly,

the characters enough to care if they lived or died, or b it weren t written in such overly dramatic, maudlin prose If Dean Koontz and Sue Monk Kidd had a baby, and that baby had some sort of developmental delay, they would have given birth to Jodi Picoult But for some reason I stayed up until four AM trying to finish this book Mostly I skimmed through the last third because yeah, Jodi, I get it The snow is a metaphor Alaska is a metaphor Everything is a metaphor You ve beat me to death with it I just want to find out what happened to Trixie s attacker KTHX I suppose the fact that she kept me reading until four AM is a testament to her storytelling talent, but considering the fact that I watched two episodes of 20 20, both about serial killers, I wasn t going to sleep until dawn broke anyway Let s just say I like finding out how her stories will be resolved, but I HATE the literary hajj I have to trek before I finally, FINALLY get there So I think I m missing something in Jodi Picoult s writing This is the third book I ve ready by her Pact, Sister s Keeper and I must say that I ve felt the same way about all three I don t really like the characters I find it hard to feel sympathetic or compassionate towards anyone in the stories Not that this is a requirement, but I think liking someone or feeling sympathy or empathy for them, makes for good reading I will give Picoult credit in that she keeps me hanging on I haven t no So I think I m missing something in Jodi Picoult s writing This is the third book I ve ready by her Pact, Sister s Keeper and I must say

always disappointed in the end though Her formula is to have a missing detail to the mystery that the main character knows, but we re waiting for her to tell us I m always expecting it to be something really unexpected that totally changes the story or the way I respond to it, but in the end, it is usually something predictable or typical.About this book in particular, I d probably rate it the worst of the three I ve read There s this whole comic book storyline of the father that I found annoying, as well as the so called 180 turnaround in his character that is talked about, but never really explained Too many loose ends, like Seth s involvement in the situation kind of a stretch It just didn t all jive for me And then the conclusion in Alaska loved the change of scenery, but seemed way too contrived to me If you re looking to start reading Picoult, start somewhere else A minha opini o em v deo uma grande, grande hist ria da Jodi Picoult.Prendeu me do inicio ao fim A nica parte de que gostei menos, foi a do Alascade resto, adorei tudo
