“Another sensational courtroom drama from Picoult”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This is one of Picoult’s best novels to date and a brilliant read.
The novel begins on an ordinary school day in a local high School in North Hampshire. That is until Peter Houghton, a student who has been bullied and teased at school for many years, enters the school with a gun and begins shooting the students.
Eventually the case comes to court and the judge sitting on the case, has a daughter at the school where the shooting has taken place. Her daughter, Josie Cromer, is the best witness to the shooting, however Josie claims she cannot remember anything about what happened.
