This book, Small Great Things is absolutely amazing. I’m impressed that a Caucasian woman wrote a novel about racism in America from both perspectives and on so many levels got it right. She also helped me to see both sides when babies have been taught hate from the womb; we got a lot of work to do. Starting with conversations although very uncomfortable.

How far would you go if your five-year-old son were sexually molested? Jodi Picoult takes on this question in PERFECT MATCH, a story that kept me reading all night. Nina Frost, a dedicated prosecutor specializing in child sexual abuse cases, Caleb, a stonemason, and their young son, Nathaniel, are a happy Maine family until Nathaniel suddenly stops talking.

What has happened to their gregarious child, Nina and Caleb frantically wonder. The answer becomes clear as Nathaniel exhibits signs of having been molested, but only he knows the identity of his abuser. Using American Sign Language, which he learned from his therapist, he eventually leads Nina to a shocking answer.

Nina, who has spent her career attempting to protect children from abusers, flies into a rage so intense that she barely recognizes herself. A mesmerizing courtroom drama then plays out.

This is not an ordinary book about a run-of-the-mill trial. It is filled with twists and turns, and all the while, the Frost family is tested. Will Nina, Caleb and Nathaniel exist as a family after the long emotional ordeal comes to an end? And what will that end look like?

As she always does, Jodi Picoult makes me think. In PERFECT MATCH, she tackles an uncomfortable subject head-on and in a well-written, thoroughly researched book, she makes me wonder to what lengths I would go to protect my child.

I must have read this book when it was first published, but I hate to admit I did not remember it at all. I usually remember all Jodi's books.
I only gave it three stars because of the main character, Nina Frost, the most hot-headed person you have ever come accross.
When she finds out her five year old son has been molested, she goes off the rails in her actions, hurting all those around her who love her. There are quite a few mitigating reasons for her actions, but the way she reacted every time aggravated me to the extreme.
Apart from that, the book is a page turner, moving fast in a plot that twists and turns when you least expect it and well written like all of this author' s novels. I just wish I could have liked Nina Frost more and not judged her so harshly. But there again non of us know what our reactions will be and what we are capable of under severe circumstances.

Jodi Picoult is an extraordinary writer. Once I get started I can hardly put her books down. However it is critical to me personally to like, respect and trust my main character. About 25% into the book, the main character of "Perfect Match" Nina, a state prosecuter specializing in child molestation cases, did something after which I had trouble accepting and continuing to truly trust and care about her. So I was less interested in picking up the book at every opportunity, however when I did I still could hardly put it down. In a truly amazing twist of actions, events, and behavior (the surprising little twists for which Picoult is well known) Nina earned back my respect. An intense and surprisingly twisted plot!

Well written and perfectly paced. I expect nothing less than awesome from Jodi Picoult and she never disappoints. I have never had one regret when I buy her books. She is a great author. Definitely one of my top 5 all time picks.

Fantastic as all the books I've read by Jodi Picoult are. I just finished reading this one & I had a hard time putting it down. Each time I finish one of her books, I think it's her best. I think her best is still reseved for "The Pact" but that could be because I was new to her as an author when I first read it. This book was sensational. All her books could be true...they all touch on subjects that are very real life.
This one was gripping, tension-filled but not scary. A page-turner with a bit of romance but not at all what I'd call a chick-flick. Actually, I love romances but men call them chick flicks, I don't.
The premise of the book is something you would read on the news & it is realistic. A courtroom drama, a family drama, a drama about a mother's love for her son & the actions any one could relate to. Makes you wonder what YOU would do if faced with the main character's dilemna.
You'll be very glad you read this book. I like to re-read books, maybe a couple of years later when they seem to be new but this book is unforgettable so I don't think I'll ever re-read it as a new book...but I am sure glad to have read it now! Now on to a new Jodi Picoult novel!

Only Jodi Picoult could write like this. I'm framing verses from this book all over my home office. Her metaphors are like really good poetry that you can really identify with. However Picoult then weaves these wonderful words and sentences into the most astounding of all plots which twists and turns with unforgiving surprises. Obviously I highly recommend this book for anyone who not only enjoys a good read but who also wants to learn to write. Thank you Miss Picoult for this amazing story and for sharing your remarkable gift.

This was a disappointing book by an excellent author. One can understand the anguish of a mother and father finding that their only son has been sexually abused. It is difficult to understand the mother's decision, especially since she is a lawyer and prosecutor. The characters in this novel are not believable or likable, nor is the plot believable. The real victim here is the son. Even more than being the victim of sexual abuse, he will suffer more as a victim who has two parents with deadly secrets.
No doubt Jodi Picoult is a great writer, but I wish that she would write at least one book that is even slightly uplifting. I find that I have to take breaks from her books because her subject matters are always so heavy. I think probably my favorite books are 19 Minutes, The Pact and My Sister's Keeper. I do wish that she would consider some lighter subject matters for a change of pace.
