Jodi Picoult is at it again with last year’s best selling book Leaving Time: A Novel. It’s a good option if you’re waiting for her next book, Living Color, to be released this coming November. Leaving Time is about Jenna Metcalf, who’s elephant researcher mother disappeared one night under mysterious circumstances. Jenna remembers nothing about what happened that night. Even though she was there, she was just a toddler at the time. Now 13 she’s pursuing the truth with the help of several allies.This book focuses on mother-daughter relationships.
