This is about a music therapist named Zoe who falls for her new best friend, Vanessa. They end up getting married and wind up in court fighting for equal rights. Strangely enough, the relationship - or their love or the trial that follows - isn't mentioned in the synopsis at all. I found it odd that the characters fought so hard to be treated equally, and yet the book jacket doesn't mention a gay relationship whatsoever. It's like the publishers stamped out (or maybe highlighted instead?) a major point that Picoult was trying to make.
I liked it okay, but the ending was sort of anticlimactic. The trial was a pageturner, and then the end kind of pooped out. I didn't like the end, but I enjoyed reading the story.
