About this item

Lisa Scottoline delivers a dramatic novel about motherhood, marriage, violence, and community solidarity in SAVE ME. Dedicated mother Rose McKenna comes to her daughter's school almost every day for lunch--to volunteer and to keep an eye on Melly, who has been getting bullied by another girl. When a bomb explodes one day at the school, Rose bravely rescues several of the children. When the dust settles, Rose finds herself at the center of a vicious legal battle that threatens to dig up a secret she has long kept buried.

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline's Save Me will touch the heart of every woman, as its heroine, the unforgettable Rose McKenna, makes a split-second decision that alters the course of her life?and makes you wonder what you would do in her shoes.

Nobody could have foreseen what would happen the day that Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in the cafeteria of her daughter's elementary school.  Rose does it to keep a discreet eye on her third-grader, Melly, a sweet, if shy, child who was born with a facial birthmark that has become her own personal bull's-eye.  Melly has been targeted by the mean girl at their new school and gets bullied every day, placing Rose in a no-win position familiar to parents everywhere.  Do we step in to protect our children when they need us, or does that make things worse?

When the bully starts to tease Melly yet again. Rose is about to leap into action?but right then, the unthinkable happens.  Rose finds herself in a nightmare, faced with an emergency decision that no mother should ever have to make.  What she decides in that split second derails Rose's life and jeopardizes everyone she holds dear, until she takes matters into her own hands and lays her life on the line to save her child, her family, her marriage?and herself.

Lisa Scottoline has thrilled millions with her inspiring female characters and her exploration of emotional justice, writing about real issues that resonate with real women.  In Save Me, she returns with her most stirring and thought-provoking novel yet.
