There’s no diplomacy, no decorum.

There’s an honesty to the wolf world that is liberating. Picoult is a good writer; her characters are strong and their motivations believable, for the most part.

Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult: review
He has kept them hidden, but now they may come to light, and if they do, Cara will be devastated. However, this book was not as fantastic as some of her others. On the third day, we named them. I think fans of Picoult will be left distinctly underwhelmed by Lone Wolf but its an accessible title for a younger audience and a reasonably quick read as the typeset is quite large.
For me, there was nothing terribly bad about Lone Wolf but neither was there anything remarkable. It may be that her books has a certain mould, a template, but she gets published only once or twice a year so if you’re like me who waits to read the latest, you can liken it to waiting for Christmas. Picoult did an amazing job in capturing the emotions of having to watch someone you love hang in the balance of life and death with no way of communicating back to the ones who they love and who loves them most.
