(This is not a young adult book.)
Summary: Two families.
Destined to be together from the moment Emily Gold was born.
Chris Harte knew that he wanted to spend that rest of his life with Emily.
They were attached at the hip.
Always together, hardly ever apart.
Their parents, best friends.
Chris spent as much time at Emily's house as he did at his own.
The two families thought that nothing could tear them apart, until the phone rings on one November morning at 3o'clock.
Emily is dead.
Chris is the prime suspect.
The question is; could Chris, who said that he wanted to devote his whole life to Emily, really kill her?
Or was it all just a plan? A suicide pact?
Did Chris mean to kill himself too, but never get the chance?
Parents always say they know their children better then anyone else could, but is that always true?
Do parents just want to believe something so they aren't the ones blamed?
Rating: 5 Stars
Review: The Pact would have to be my favorite book by Jodi Picoult and trust me, I've read a lot of them. Jodi Picoult uses the power of words in a way that people rarely get to experience. Suspense, mystery, joy, pain, love, hate and so many other feelings are all woven beautifully into Jodi Picoults books. Ever book has a story behind it, ever book has a purpose. Whenever Jodi Picoult looks for an idea for a new book, she never goes far. She is known for dealing with problems in our world; suicide, depression, murders, killings, love, friendship. Jodi shows ever stage of things with twist and turns thrown in everywhere. The Pact was wonderfully written. I would recommend this book to anyone. Book lovers, non book lovers. Everyone will enjoy this book. It will make you cry, laugh, think, dream, and imagine.
