Synopsis

Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult

Luke Warren would sleep in the dirt if it meant he could be under the stars. He lives by the laws of nature, and would surely want to die that way. But Luke is in a coma, and his family must make an unbearable decision. As tensions and secrets rise to the surface, the tragic accident which brought them back together against the odds could well tear Luke's family apart forever. They know Luke would not want to live like this. But how can they choose to let him die?

The plot is fast paced, fascinating and makes the reader consider just what would I do? ' ***** -- NewBooks Magazine 'Picoult as usual probes intriguing matters of the heart while introducing her fans to subjects they might not otherwise explore.

's Own 'Heartache and an unbearable decision are at the centre of Jodi Picoult's latest powerful book.' **** -- Star magazine 'LONE WOLF could have been an overblown sob story, but the excellent Jodi picoult moulds it into superior literary ficton in a gripping human story.'
Mail on Sunday

'It's an emotional story about what can happen to a family when things fall apart. It's full of suspense and tension, but that doesn't stop you relating to the characters. Jodi Picoult understands what her readers love: a well-written, intelligent, challenging story.'
