Book #38: 50 Book Challenge 2012

Sing You Home - Jodi Picoult

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.
