Well done book. Richard and Liz Bergamot's New York world is pretty perfect, and their children's too- private schools, lots of extracurriculars, a warm and loving family with economic secutiry and a stable life. When their 15 year old son Jake is sent a pornographic video by a younger girl he rejected, he forwards it to his best friend, in a mistake that leads to disaster for everyone involved. Reminded me a bit of Anita Shreve's Testimony- teen sexual activities recorded and shared, and the fallout that can ensue, but was much better.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
