If there is one thing I can say about reading Jodi Picoult books it is that you always get an education. Her books are incredibly researched, so that whatever the subject matter is, you now feel like an authority on the subject. What is the subject you ask? Why it's elephants. Yes, elephants. Everything you need to know, from the tips of their floppy ears to the nails on their hooves. From their incredible memories (yes, an elephant never forgets) to their grieving process when a death occurs.
Thirteen-year-old Jenna is searching for her mother, a scientist who studied grieving among elephants, who disappeared ten years ago under mysterious circumstances. Aiding in her search is retired Police Detective now Private Detective Virgil Stanhope and Psychic Serenity Jones. This unlikely team gathers decade-old clues and re-investigates a decade-old murder. A startling twist ends the book with something I did not see coming. At all.
Lots to read but I am unsure if it was worth the time. Not a bad book just very unusual.
