New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult captivates readers in this riveting tale of a brother and sister faced with a decision that will forever alter their relationship…and their lives.
Few know better than 24-year-old Edward Warren the loneliness of a prodigal son. After an irreparable fight with his father six years ago, Edward sought sanctuary in Thailand, and has remained there since. But a frantic phone call suddenly destroys all hope of reconciliation: a terrible accident has injured his sister Cara and left his father in a coma.
Despite the knowledge that her dad’s chances for recovery are minimal, a recovering Cara is determined to wait for a miracle. Edward is all for terminating life support and donating his father’s organs. Is he motivated by altruism or revenge? And to what lengths will Cara go to stop her brother from making an irrevocable decision?
Lone Wolf explores the notions of family and the love, protection and strength it’s meant to offer. But what if the hope that should sustain it is the very thing that pulls it apart? This latest tour de force from Jodi Picoult examines the wild and lonely terrain upon which love can battle reason.

This was my first Jodi Picoult book. It was powerful and stunning. Being in the medical field, I would normally opt for termination, but this book really brings out the other side, making you side with the daughter and want to believe and try. Excellent.

I did not care for this book at all. I've read several of her books and enjoyed them, wish I did not buy this one.
Having a hard time flipping back and forth between characters - hope it gets better.
I agree with the reader regarding abundance of "wolf" info; however, I think it's necessary for Luke's character and his reasons for doing what he did.
Not my favorite JPicoult book.
