From the New York Times bestselling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. Her fears come true when the bullying begins, sending Melly to the bathroom in tears. Just as Rose is about to follow after her daughter, a massive explosion goes off in the kitchen, sending the room into chaos. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. She believes she has accomplished both, only to discover that Amanda, for an unknown reason, ran back into the school once out of Rose's sight. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda’s injuries on her. In the days that follow, Rose's life starts to fall to pieces, Amanda’s mother decides to sue, her marriage is put to the test, and worse, when her daughter returns to school, the bullying only intensifies. Rose must take matters into her own hands and get down to the truth of what really happened that fateful day in order to save herself, her marriage and her family. In the way that Look Again had readers questioning everything they thought they knew about family, Save Me will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. Lisa Scottoline is writing about real issues that resonate with real women, and the results are emotional, heartbreaking and honest.

I had high hopes for this book and sadly it really didn't live up to my expectations. I sat down and read this book within a matter of hours but to me it felt like days. This book felt more like two books than one, but maybe that is because it seemed to drag on. I had a hard time connecting with Ros...

I received this as a goodreads first read. I am disappointed with this book. It started out good and moved pretty quickly but then it just seemed to drag on. I had to put it away for awhile before I started reading it again. Just got too boring. Things did come together in the end just took a li...

This book actually started off quite strong, and I thought it was comparable to Jodi Picoult's style. It sucked me in right away and then it took a turn for the worse. Instead of sticking to the problem of being accused to letting a little girl stay in the fire to die, and the ensuing court case, sh...

I was given this book as a kris kringle/secret santa present this year, by somebody who clearly doesn't know me very well. I have tried to read chick lit before, assuming it would be enjoyable in that vapid, lazy way that playing Bejewelled on my phone and clicking through facebook profiles of frien...
