For eighteen years the Hartes and the Golds have lived next door to each other, sharing everything from Chinese food to chicken pox to carpool duty. Parents and children alike have been best friends, so it's no surprise that in high school Chris and Emily's friendship blossoms into something more. So when midnight calls from the hospital come in, no one is ready for the appalling truth: Emily is dead at seventeen from a gunshot wound to the head. There is a single unspent bullet in the gun that Chris took from his father's cabinet - a bullet that Chris tells police he intended for himself. But a detective has doubts about the suicide pact that Chris has described. The profound questions faced by the characters in this heartrending novel are those we can all relate to: How well do we ever really know our children or our friends? As its chapters unfold, alternating between an idyllic past and an unthinkable present, The Pact paints an indelible portrait of families in anguish, culminating in an astonishingly suspenseful courtroom drama.

Annemarie Hall on
This is a powerful novel that deals with love in its most strongest degree. what would we do if we lost the love of our lives, or a close family member or friend.
Heart wrenching from the first sentence to the very last, this novel will have you saying wow after you close the last page.
This novel is a must read as is every other Jodi Picoult novel.
I loved this book. Jodi Picoult always tells the story in a way that touches your heart and is always emotional, especially at the end. I felt angry towards Em for what she did to Chris and her Family. Reading this book makes you realise how much you really love the person you are with. It was so sad in the end I cried! (not usually what I do when reading. I highly recommend this book to anybody. Great read
