This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. A friend lent me the book a few years ago. I say 'lent' but, really, a more accurate description might be that she forced it into my hands and ordered me to read at least the first three chapters under pain of death. I broke down and gave it a shot ... and absolutely fell in love. A suicide pact gone wrong and only one side of the he said she said story available. I didn't end up being a hardcore Jodi Picoult fan but this book seriously changed my opinion of 'Chick Lit'. The characters and the ending are well written and ring true.
