Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

ISBN: 0-7434-1873-5 Page count: 353


Nina Frost is an assistant DA who sees hundreds of cases of child abuse every day. But what happens when the abused child turns out to be her own? She knows the legal system inside and out, but what she does with this knowledge will shock you.


This isn't the first book of Jodi Picoult's that I have read and I will tell you right now, I really like her work. Therefore, this review might be a tad biased. There are definitely some books of hers I enjoy more than others and this happens to be one of them. There are several traits that all her books seem to have in common: 1) A main character with some sort of relationship to the legal system, 2) at least one major plot twist you don't see coming. Perfect Match is no exception to these rules. This is a very well written book that drags you inside the drama and keeps you up at night wanting to find out what happens next. I pride myself on being one of those people who can figure out the end of the book by the 4th chapter, but this one has several surprises that I just did not expect. It keeps you guessing until the very end.


  1. Hi
    I'm dropping in from the Coffee Shop.
    I've not read this book but I do like Jodi Picoult's books.
    Have a nice day!

  2. It's definitely worth a read! Thanks for visiting!

  3. This story of the lenghths that a family would go for the love of a child was exceptional. This smart and well written novel mixes humor, tradgedy and the fact that despite who we are, ultimatley we are only humans who could never predict the lengths that we would go to in the name of love.
