"The Pact" by Jodi Picoult

In The Pact by Jodi Picoult, Chris & Emily grew up together and then became lovers (although Emily really didn’t want to marry Chris ). She became pregnant but didn’t tell anyone. Went for an abortion but changed her mind. The jail time and trial was very interesting and I liked the parents perspective—seeing their kids as perfect.  I liked the attorney very much too.  Great book about young love.

The Pact was the first book either of us read by Jodi Picoult and we loved it!  She is an amazing writer who can really hold your attention and keep you interested right from the start.  Her books go quick because they are so good, you can't put them down!  This one keeps you wondering if Chris is really guilty or not.

Please tell us: What categories of literature do you like? What are you reading now? Who are your top five favorite authors? Have you read this one? What did you think of it?


  1. That is precisely why i hated it and swore of Jody Picoult. Forever.

    When I say forever, I mean until three weeks ago. Hey, I figured there must be a reason she's so popular.

  2. The Pact really captured how teenagers think and act. Anyone working with teenagers will understand how they think things through and I feel that Jodi does a great job capturing that thought process.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
