Sing You Home
Books | Fiction / General
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult, this astonishing novel is “another winner.…Picoult cleverly examines the modern world of reproductive science, how best to nurture a child and what, exactly, being a family means” (People).Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. There’s the melody that reminds her of the summer she spent rubbing baby oil on her stomach in pursuit of the perfect tan. A dance beat that makes her think of using a fake ID to slip into a nightclub. A dirge that marked the years she spent trying to get pregnant. In the aftermath of a series of personal tragedies, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. When an unexpected friendship slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people—even those she loves and trusts most—don’t want that to happen. “A carefully constructed, multilayered novel about the transformative power of storytelling” (Newsday), Sing You Home deals with identity, love, marriage, and parenthood. It’s about people wanting to do the right thing for the greater good, even as they work to fulfill their own personal desires and dreams. And it’s about what happens when the outside world brutally calls into question the very thing closest to our hearts: family.

"This was fantastic. An issue I would have NEVER thought of. Jodi Picoult really has a way of forcing her readers to consider issues they wouldn’t have otherwise and seeing them from each perspective. The ending of this book was beautiful and couldn’t have been better in my opinion. One of my favorite reads by her. "
"I picked this up at the library after a long hiatus from Jodi Picoult books, and was reminded why I stopped reading her. Cliche after cliche, unrealistic story, flat characters. In general I was underwhelmed and think I'm officially done with this author!"
