Second Glance: A Novel

Second Glance: A Novel - Jodi Picoult I had actually started to read this book a few years ago and stopped 50 pages in because I couldn't get into it. Having read 11 of Jodi's books, all of which I loved, I figured Second Glance was worth another try. I couldn't get myself to like Ross, but the suspense surrounding the strange occurrences in Comtosook kept me on the edge. I was fairly certain the ending would be very Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which I really was not prepared for. Appreciated the themes of the book, being the closeted romantic that I am, and ended up being surprised by the amount of research she must have gone through to create an intricately detailed story of love and loss.
