Review | Handle With Care

Jodi Picoult will be at Rowland Hall-St. Mark’s (on Lincoln) on Wednesday, March 25, at 7 p.m.

Picoult’s newest, Handle With Care, is the ideal weekend escape–a riveting page-turner of a novel. Charlotte and Sean O’Keefe’s vibrant, wonderful six-year-old Willow is perfect in every way, except for her health. Willow suffers from OI (osteogenesis imperfecta), a disease that consumers the family’s every waking moment. Exploring family dynamics when they collide not only with medical issues but lawsuits as well, Picoult weaves a story that questions our assumptions about health and quality of life while introducing us to unforgettable characters. – Jenn Northington

    I’ ve read every novel by Jodi Picoult and I’m
    sorry to say I did not find this one to my liking.
    First off, I did not like the ending. It did not
    seem in keeping with the mom’s agenda that
    at the end, she put the uncashed check into her
    child’s casket. Didn’t seem likely to me. Second,
    there’s a reason Shakespeare ventured “first,kill all the lawyers.”
