Review: Look Again by Lisa Scottoline (Wanda)

When reporter Ellen Gleeson gets a “Have You Seen This Child?” flyer in the mail, she almost throws it away. But something about it makes her look again, and her heart stops—the child in the photo is identical to her adopted son, Will. Her every instinct tells her to deny the similarity between the boys, because she knows her adoption was lawful. But she’s a journalist and won’t be able to stop thinking about the photo until she figures out the truth. And she can’t shake the question: if Will rightfully belongs to someone else, should she keep him or give him up? She investigates, uncovering clues no one was meant to discover, and when she digs too deep, she risks losing her own life—and that of the son she loves. Lisa Scottoline breaks new ground in Look Again, a thriller that’s both heart-stopping and heart-breaking, and sure to have new fans and book clubs buzzing.

This book is soooo good! Now luckily I'm blessed to have children and have one handsome boy of my own. But had I had to adopt and see myself in this situation, I honestly have to say I would NOT know what to do or where to start. But from the minute Ellen saw that card something in her stirred and she couldn't let it go. She starred at the picture in different lighting's to make sure that she was seeing it correctly and started making comparisons. The picture on that white card looked identical to her adopted son Will. Did her son have a twin and she not know about it? Having legally adopted Will she didn't feel so concerned. However she had a nagging feeling about it all and started doing her own investigation. Which led her to different directions and being the journalist that she is, she followed her leads. She started to uncover facts in which got her thinking, what would she do if Will wasn't legally hers? Would she lose her son? Would she have to give him back? Could she give him back? Could you?
I wouldn't know what to do in this situation. I know in my heart I'd have to give him up if I knew his real family didn't legally give him up for adoption. But could you imagine the pain and suffering that would cause both the new parent and child? 

Well Ellen was looking into doing the right thing. But the right thing came out completely wrong and her life and her son's life Will became at risk.
This book started out good from beginning to end! It had a little bit of action and a bit of drama. This book literally had me put it down, and just think. What would I do? A Definite Must Read and A Good Choice for Reading =)

  1. Lisa Scottoline told a story like no other I've ever read before. It was suspenseful it was romantic, it was an amazing read. If you're dubious about reading this one, don't be! It's amazing to say the least. It had me at the edge of my seat. I found it difficult to put down! It was a fast read as well. Trust me this is a story you'll be glad you read! It's that good! I really hope this review helps. Look Again was the first book I have read by Lisa Scottoline and I was impressed, I can't wait to read another one of her books, I really liked her style, a lot.
