About the book
Straight down the line classic Picoult, taking a hot subject (Asperger's) and marrying it with a thorny issue (what do you do if you think your child may be guilty of something terrible?) to make a moving, unputdownable novel
4.2 million copies of Jodi Picoult's books sold in the UK alone since first publication less than 5 years ago
MY SISTER'S KEEPER was a big-budget film starring Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin and Abigail Breslin, and the film tie-in edition has sold 250,000 copies in twelve weeks.
Jodi Picoult is a number one bestseller in America, Australia and South Africa as well as the UK
Picoult is published all around the world in more than 30 languages
Jacob Hunt is a teenager: brilliant at maths, wicked sense of humour, extraordinarily organised, hopeless at reading social cues. And Jacob has Asperger's. He is locked in his own world - aware of the world outside, and wanting to make a connection. Jacob tries to be like everyone else, but doesn't know how.When his tutor is found dead, all the hallmark behaviours of Jacob's syndrome - not looking someone in the eye, odd movements, inappropriate actions - start looking a lot like guilt to the police. And Jacob's mother must ask herself the hardest question in the world: is her child capable of murder?

Read Review   Want to write a review?
'Dark, serious books that explore family relationships and scary moral dilemmas involving religion, crime and politics'
'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution . . . A challenging and clever read'

'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical'

'Impossible to put down and stayed in my mind long after I had finished'
'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it.'
