Genre: Popular Fiction
Review: Edward returns home to New Hampshire from Thailand after six years of estrangement from his family. His father, famous wolf biologist Luke Warren, is in a coma, after a car accident with his sister Cara. Cara wants her dad to live, but Edward wants to terminate life support. The medical and courtroom drama that ensues is interspersed with Luke's life living among the wolves (bizarre yet interesting descriptions) and flashbacks to the family's past. The metaphor of the wolf pack/human family is developed throughout the novel. Not my favorite Picoult novel, but intriguing nonetheless.

Song to Read By: "Seven Devils" by Florence and the Machine (atmospheric and thrilling, like the novel)
