Sing You Home

Picoult, Jodi. Sing You Home. Atria Books, 2011.

People attempting to conceive and miscarrying. Suicidal teens. Religious fundamentalists. Gay people. Big court cases over frozen embryos - what's not to like in this novel? I listened to the audio version of this novel and really enjoyed not only the narration but also the songs that preceded each chapter. And I will admit that I cried when Zoe and Vanessa married - even if their marriage took place in a bowling alley.

This is a great novel for adults who want to wrestle lightly with some tough issues without delving into a teen book.  And it's got a wedding - in a bowling alley.  Like I said, what's not to like?
