Given to me today by Emscott10 when we met up for one of our regular bookswap sessions. Being a Jodi Picoult fan I'm looking forward to seeing how she deals with this plot.

REVIEW:-"While I enjoyed the story in this book I did find the constant toing and froing, timewise, very annoying and confusing. I'm sure it could have been told just as dramatically in chronological order. It covers very serious subjects such as abortion, rape and murder so would not be for the faint-hearted.
I felt that the confidentiality left much to be desired at the Clinic and was surprised that women waiting for birth control would be mixing with those booking in for abortions and consequently having to run the gauntlet of protesters. However I guess this can be put down to "authors' licence" in order to dramatize the story.

It made me think that life is very strange with every month so many women being desperate to become pregnant while at the same time so many others are dreading this happening. Also that any particular woman may change from one to the other during her lifetime.
There were a couple of twists at the end of the story that I wasn't expecting and in general I thought it was well-written with strong believable characters.
I'm reserving the book for another bookcrosser.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

I really enjoyed this book, although it is very intense and as I was stressed I had to put it down for a long time. It gave a very good (Albeit slightly biased towards the right to choose) account of the issues surrounding abortion and family planning in America. Fortunately in the UK you can just go to your family doctor and ask for contraception, which is free. This book is now reserved for another reader from the wish list tag.
