Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult

I had the pleasure of meeting Jodi Picoult at her book signing over the weekend. Ms. Picoult was a delight and made it clear why she is one of the most popular authors in the marketplace. I am half way through her newest books Lone Wolf and truly enjoying the book. Ms Picoult spoke over the weekend about the premise of the book and the ethical dilemma that takes place. In our society when someone is in a coma, or considered to be brain dead it is common practice to take someone off life support. However, there have been several 'miracle'stories where someone recovers from bringing brain dead and goes on to live a full life. Who should make the decision about life support? Should it be legal to decide for someone else when they should give up? Per usual, Picoult leaves the reader asking them self what would they do in that situation. I can't wait to finish as i'm sure it will be a wonderful and surprising ending.
