Fourteen-year-old Trixie Stone is in love for the first time. She's also the light of her father, Daniel's life -- a straight-A student; a pretty, popular freshman in high school; a girl who's always seen her father as a hero. That is, until her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence. Suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family -- and herself -- seems to be a lie. Could the boyfriend who once made Trixie wild with happiness have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a seemingly mild-mannered comic book artist with a secret tumultuous past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back to protect his daughter. With The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult offers her most powerful chronicle yet as she explores the unbreakable bond between parent and child, and questions whether you can reinvent yourself in the course of a lifetime -- or if your mistakes are carried forever.
No one knows how much I love it when I am on spring break! It gives me time to read more books. This is another one of Picoult's wonderful books. I also saw it's a lifetime movie as well, which sparked my interest to read it. As usual, Picoult's writing was simply fabulous and it makes me so happy to see that all her wonderful books are being made into film! The film changed things from the ending. I liked the book better! I always prefer the book. I am looking forward to more of Jodi's books.
