Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult

I first read, "Songs of the Humpback Whale" in, July of 2008.
You can see my blog post on it HERE.

Jane and Oliver get into physical fight and Jane and her daughter jump into the car and leave. They embark on a journey from California to Massachusetts to visit Jane's brother, Joley.  Jane and Rebecca follow clues that, Joley has mailed to different cities.

Oliver determined to get them back, decides to "track" them and bring them back home.

A life altering event and tragedy strikes, changing lives.

The story is told in 5 different perspectives and at times can be a tad confusing since Rebecca's story is told backwards but once you get the hang of it, it all makes sense.

This was, Picoult's debut novel and while it took me a while to get into it. it was worth the read.
