Plot summary : Jodi Picoult brings us a powerful story of a young girl’s determination to uncover the truth, however shocking and life-changing it might be.

Jenna Metcalf was with her mother the night she disappeared, but she remembers nothing.

In the wake of those tragic events, she has lost not one parent, but two: her father is in an asylum, and now she lives with her grandmother – who finds it too painful to talk about what happened.

Ten years on, Jenna is the only one who still seems to care. And she is determined to seek the truth, no matter how shocking and life-changing it might be . . . (Source : Fantastic Fiction)

Review : Picoult’s novels are always enjoyed and awaited for by me, with their deep characters, great research and multilayered story lines.  Leaving Time is about parental love, friendship and loss of loved ones and shows elephants have the same response as humans to these emotions.
