The Pact, a Love Story by Jodi Picoult
Meet Chris and Emily, two kids who have known each other since birth, grown up next door to each other, and now have fallen in love. Everything is perfect for both families until Emily is discovered shot to death. Picoult masterfully unfolds her story as two families who were best friends for the last eighteen years are torn apart by murder, suicide, and unanswerable questions. The authors tackles teen fears and anxieties, the bonds of friendship and love and just what will destroy those bonds. Though one of Picoult’s earlier works (as evidenced by the lack of cell phones and modern technology) this story is still wonderfully woven and crafted. It’s easy to see why she is still so popular today.
