The bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy.

Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens—until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state’s best witness, but she can’t remember what happened before her very own eyes—or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show—destroying the closest of friendships and families. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Guarisco | 2/18/2014

    " Perfect beach reading -- a compelling, fast read. Because I've read enough of her work, I saw the ending coming before it arrived, but still, it's her twists that make her books so much fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 2/16/2014

    " embroiling. very good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine Robinson LaBar | 2/8/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula Cole | 2/7/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roseanne Udy | 1/30/2014

    " This was a good story but I found it confusing at the start as the author swaps between so many characters. I enjoyed the depth and description of this tale. It was interesting and thought provoking to consider the "other-side". As a mother it would be devastating if a child performed such a heinous act. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Judy | 1/26/2014

    " Debating between 3-4 Stars. Good story, but it reminded me too much of aNum3ers episode I once saw. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Colanino brown | 1/24/2014

    " This book is hard to put down. It draws you in right away due to it's relevance today. As a mother of teenagers, and as a teacher, it was, at times, emotionally a tough read. I highly recommend this book to high-schoolers and adults as well. My daughter is a senior and she was enthralled by it. "

    " I was never a huge Jodi Picoult fan until I read this book! This book had me hooked from the first chapter and kept me guessing at what would happen next and how things would work out. The ending seriously blew me away! This book pulled at my heart strings and I definitely cried... like a baby lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mayra Calderon | 9/7/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Doucette | 8/20/2012

    " I get so angry at Jodi Picoult, because she is a brilliant writer, and her characters are so well fleshed out... but she cannot end a book to save her life. I have given her so many chances and EVERY time I read one of her books, her endings fall flat. This one was no exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linsey | 6/26/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emkaf | 3/13/2012

    " a true page turner that makes the bold decision to try and explain the unexplainable as it explores the mind and childhood of the shooter. proves that everybody has a story, but sometimes our trauma and experiences aren't enough to justify our actions. so many lessons to be taken from this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Kacmarsky | 6/24/2011

    " This is one of the few books that has ever made me cry. Jodi Picoult's writing is absolutely fantastic. "

    " Great book! So real because it can happen anywhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 5/24/2011

    " Made me think about the whole incident differently! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/23/2011

    " Fast paced. Compelling. Emotional.

    I don't typically reread, but every once in a while feel like there is so much in a book I should enjoy it a second time. This is one of those. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethgentner | 5/23/2011

    " This author really manages to hone in on timely topics, and the story closely follows a similar tragedy in our country's history. Somehow, even though the topic does make you really ponder issues, it seems too formulaic since she is borrowing so much from the news. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 5/23/2011

    " It was a powerful story, some of it based on any of the (unfortunate) high school shooting that have taken place all across the country. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marz | 5/22/2011

    " Such a good book! had its boring parts, but overall it was well-written and exciting! could not believe the ending! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lovelle | 5/21/2011

    " I think this book made me realize a lot of things.. Things that I should be noticing and pay some attention.. That some people are just not like the others.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dolly | 5/19/2011

    " I think every teacher, actually anyone involved with children - of any age, should read this book. It will certainly heighten your awareness to often unseen issues which many kids must struggle with. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Callmemargie | 5/18/2011

    " Easy read, great story, didn't like the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devin | 5/17/2011

    " This book by Jodi Picoult was very interesting. When the shooting happened, nobody expected the funny, jovial student behind the trigger. Nobody expected the bad boy gang member to be the savior. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judith | 5/16/2011

    " This is a once-you-start-cannot-put-it-down book. Jodi Picoult is excellent at drawing you in, making you feel as though you know the characters of her books. You feel the highs and lows of each person from beginning to end. Definitely a must read!
