The Pact by Jodi Picoult

thepact

“Do you know… what it’s like to love someone so much, that you can’t see yourself without picturing [them]? Or what it’s like to touch someone, and feel like you’ve come home?”

“…and he suddenly knew that if she killed herself, he would die. Maybe not immediately, maybe not with the same blinding rush of pain, but it would happen. You couldn’t live for very long without a heart.”

A wonderful book about expectations and the fear of not accomplishing your goals and letting your loved ones down. It was a rocky road from before the trial and during trying to get a sense of how Chris truly felt and what really occurred. I thought the pace was pretty good through out and I liked the ending.
