Selected by Indie Booksellers for the May 2009 Indie Notables
“Look Again is a timely and topical thriller -- a story of an adopted son and missing children that tugs at the heart at the same moments that it ratchets up the tension. There is an economy and charm to Scottoline's prose that beguiles the reader and ensnares them in a web of suspense, and there is no one better in creating a sense of empathy with the lead character.”
-- Joe Drabyak, Chester County Book & Music Company, West Chester, PA


Description

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.

  1. LOOK AGAIN really examines the notion of parenthood. What do you think makes someone a parent? Do you think the bond a child has with a non-biological parent can be as strong as one they would have with a biological parent? Why?
