Josh Goldin's happy yet unexamined existence is shattered one morning when his wife, Dori, rushes their eight-month- old son to the emergency room in severe distress. Dr. Darlene Stokes, an African-American physician and single mother, suspects Munchausen by proxy, a rarely diagnosed and controversial phenomenon where a mother intentionally harms her baby. As each of them is forced to confront a reality that has become a nightmare, Darlene, Dori, and Josh are pushed to their breaking points.

Darin Strauss's extraordinary novel is set in a world turned upside down-where doctors try to save babies from their parents, police use the law to tear families apart, and the people you think you know best end up surprising you the most.

    " sooo good. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear the verdict. I only wish there were a few more chapters. it didn't end like I wanted. I really enjoyed it though. "

    " Darin Strauss' writing is really fantastic and I think that may have been the reason I found this book so good. Many of his thoughts and sentences stayed with me for days. This is not a light story, it's intense and heartbreaking and you won't come out of it liking any of the characters except Zach(the baby). That said though... it's definitely one of the more interesting stories I've read in a while. Highly recommend it to anyone. "

    " Great book. Disturbing subject. The story just catches you at the beginning. However, there are a few slow points - the father's release from jail/ the Upfront sales - which was a disappointment considering how great the rest of the book is. Loved the use of metaphors and similes peppered throughout. Really would have like it to continue with the story. "
