by Jodi Picoult
Wow wow wow!! I absolutely loved this book. It was engaging, unpredictable, well-written, well researched, and so so interesting.
The character development was superb. It deals with so many different topics, but at its core is science, love, nature, mother-daughter relationships, the paranormal, and the plight of elephants. It may sound like a strange concoction, but boy did it work.
I highly recommend it!
