Author Jodi Picoult has done it again. Her new book “Sing You Home” has debuted at #1 on both the USA Today Booklist and the NYT print and e-book list. Why has this book become so popular so quickly?– Probably Picoult’s ability to tackle controversial issues in a powerful and moving storyline.
“Sing You Home” explores what it means to be gay in today’s world, reproductive science, religion and the U.S. legal system. This deeply complex novel makes you ponder what it means to be a “traditional family” today.
On Twitter, fans are expressing their love for the book and have even created a hashtag, #SingYouHome, to discuss the plot and its serious issues.
