Readalikes - Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult

Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult is a heartwrenching story of a family with a severely disabled daughter. The family is stretched to its limits financially and emotionally. In order to be able to continue to care for this child, they sue for wrongful life. In doing this they must state that had they been made aware of their daughter's medical condition they would have opted for abortion.

Her next book will be released in 2010 and will be called House Rules. It is about Asperger's Syndrome.
