Monthly Adult Book Discussion

October selection:

Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult

How alike are wolves to humans?  And if faced with the decision, would you take your loved one off life support?  These are a few questions answered in Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult.

Lone Wolf is the story of Luke, a researcher, literally living with a pack of wolves.  After an accident, Luke becomes comatose.  While on life support, his estranged son and 17 year-old daughter must decide whether to keep him alive or end his life line.
