Leaving Home brings together three previously published short pieces, each dealing with a variation on the theme of leaving home. The first, “Weights and Measures,” deals with the tragic loss of a child; the second is a nonfiction letter Picoult wrote to her eldest son as he left for college; and “Ritz” tells the story of a mother who takes the vacation all mothers need sometime.

“It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong.” ―The Washington Post

Jodi Picoult has the remarkable ability to portray an event's key moments and feelings in a potent narration that tugs at the heartstrings. Leaving Home's three emotionally charged stories deal with a gamut of pain, regret, unconditional love, memory, motherhood, and friendship that the author renders almost palpably. Fans will find that Leaving Home offers another shining example of Picoult's skill as a storyteller. Those new to her work will find this a magnificent introduction. -- Shirley Hong
