Handle with care

Handle with care

“Handle with Care” is a book written by Jodi Picoult, who currently is one of my favorite authors. This book is about Willow, who was born with osteogenesis imperfecta also known as brittle bone disease. When her parents face finacial ruin they consider sueing for wrongful birth. But to complicate matters further, the doctor they are about to sue is the best friend of Willows mother…

The book is wonderfully written, with lots of unexpected twists and turns. What really makes it special, is that the different main characters, such as Willow’ parents and her sister but also the doctor and the lawyer are telling part of the story. (… and infusing their very personal opinions and views.)

I enjoyed reading the book immensely, in spite of the rather unexpected ending (… which I won’t give away in case somebody still hasn’t read it ;))

Anyway the picture, which I added to this post, I my version of the book cover! (In case anybody wonders how the original looks like, I linked a picture of it to my drawing!)
