Handle with Care

Handle with Care - Jodi Picoult Like most of Jodi Picoult books, this was a super long story, but one well worth reading.You know when a story has your full attention when you find yourself thinking about it throughout your day, or, in my case, dreaming about it.I love that Jodi Picoult books are told by multiple characters view points and that they have smaller stories intertwined. The main story centres around the O'Keefe family and their two daughters, one named Willow, that has a 'Brittle Bone' disorder called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, and another named Amelia that is struggling with where she fits in the family and with life in general. I won't give too much away but there is a lengthy lawsuit throughout the entire book that delves into love, loss, struggles, friendship, jealousy, resentment etc.Two things that bugged me and stopped me from rating it 5 stars... Firstly, all the recipes throughout book. I guess seeing as the mother, Charlotte, was a pastry chef, they were supposed to be metaphorical, but they were a bit lost on me. Also, I kind of slumped my shoulders when I read the ending, it felt unnessecary. That being said, I still added it to my favourites list because I liked the overall story so much.If you like Jodi Picoult, or want to read an intriguing book with a unique and controversial topic, read this book.
