This breakout, award-winning novel from New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult received glowing praise from critics. Kirkus Reviews called it an affecting study of obsession, loss, and some of the more wrenching varieties of guilt, while People praised it as engrossing. The Hartes and the Golds have been neighbors for 18 years and are very close. So when Chris and Emilys friendship reaches the next level, nobody is surprised. Then one night, the hospital calls. Seventeen-year-old Emily is dead shot in the head by a gun Chris took from his fathers cabinet. One bullet remains in the chamber, and Chris tells of his suicide pact with Emily. But the police have questions, and soon Chris is on trial for murder.

"In an understated voice, George Guidall captures all the drama of this melancholy love story. He moves deftly between voices in a novel with multiple characters, cuing the listener discreetly. The plot lends itself well to audio as the narration flashes back to provide background to the mystery that unfolds. Occasionally, Guidall's portrayal of female voices sounds more weak than feminine, but even those lapses seem suited to the tragedy that develops. After all, the central characters endure a tremendous shock in the aftermath of the alleged pact that destroys their lives, leaving them forever altered. All in all, this is an addictive audiobook.
