You won't be able to put this one down." --Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of SING YOU HOME and HOUSE RULES

"A novel packed with excitement and emotion, SAVE ME is a gut-clenching, heart-stirring read." --Sandra Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Tough Customer

Product Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice

Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. Her fears come true when the bullying begins, sending Melly to the bathroom in tears. Just as Rose is about to follow after her daughter, a massive explosion goes off in the kitchen, sending the room into chaos. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. She believes she has accomplished both, only to discover that Amanda, for an unknown reason, ran back into the school once out of Rose's sight. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda’s injuries on her. In the days that follow, Rose's life starts to fall to pieces, Amanda’s mother decides to sue, her marriage is put to the test, and worse, when her daughter returns to school, the bullying only intensifies. Rose must take matters into her own hands and get down to the truth of what really happened that fateful day in order to save herself, her marriage and her family.

In the way that Look Again had readers questioning everything they thought they knew about family, Save Me will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. Lisa Scottoline is writing about real issues that resonate with real women, and the results are emotional, heartbreaking and honest.

2.0 out of 5 stars A "What If" Novel June 21 2011
Format:Hardcover
Save Me by Lisa Scottoline

If you enjoy the type of novels that want you to ask yourself the hard 'what if' or 'what would I do in this type of situation' questions, then you may find this novel interesting'at least for the first 8 or 10 chapters, because that is what this novel asks you to do. It tries to ask you to put yourself in a situation that may make you uncomfortable, unpopular and may even call you ethics into question.

Or, after ten chapters you may do like me and simply roll your eyes at the antics of the 'heroine' and want to call it a day. While the story could have been 'all that and a bag of chips' the stilted dialogue, unsympathetic characters, outlandishly unrealistic plot makes this a difficult read to take seriously or to even simply like. The plot is all over the place with no rhyme or reason, and some secondary stories just seem thrown in willy-nilly. For the life of me I cannot see why Ms Scottoline did things like this.. The main story of our heroine taking flak for supposedly saving her child above any other child, would have been sufficient to carry this book. The author chooses to throw in revelations that really had no bearing on the story and childish antics that has the heroine finding out that there was a nefarious plot going on to kill several people. Frankly, just the 'what if' idea was enough for an entire book.

Sadly, I expected so much more from an author of this caliber.

The first book I read of hers, Look Again, I couldn't put down. This one was just as good. Always an unexpected twist with her novels. Made me think about the volunteer work I do myself. I will definitely read more of her books.

First one of her books I read and I found it an easy read. I really enjoyed the book. But it sure makes you think about what you may take on next time you are asked to help out for something.
