Only at Target, find the February, 2010, Club Pick "Look Again" by Lisa Scottoline.
When 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 looks exactly like her adopted son, Will.
Everything inside her tells her to deny the similarity between her son and the boy in the photo, 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 gets to the truth. And she can't shake the question: If Will rightfully belongs to someone else, should she keep him or give him up? Ellen makes the wrenching decision to investigate, uncovering clues no one was meant to uncover. And when she digs too deep, she risks losing her life---and that of the son she loves.
In this emotionally charged, heart-pounding thriller, Lisa Scottoline has broken new ground. Look Again questions the very essence of parenthood and raises a moral quandary that will haunt readers long after they've finished the last page, leaving them with the ultimate question: What would I do?
A mother's love is the most powerful, eternal truth there is, but what if it is based on a lie? Lisa Scottoline, known for her pulse-pounding thrillers, adds some brain and a lot of heart to the adrenaline in this novel, which uses a Jodi Picoult-like premise to aim at a wider audience. Philadelphia journalist Ellen Gleason discovers that her adopted son, Will, may be a missing child from Florida. As she begins to investigate, she finds a disturbing number of dead ends and dead bodies. It soon becomes apparent that there are greater forces at work, and that she and Will are a smaller part of a grand, evil scheme--which means they too are disposable. The only way for Ellen to protect Will is to expose the malicious conspiracy, but the closer she comes to the truth, the closer she may be to losing her beloved son.
