Six books on Jodi Picoult's recommended list

Jodi Picoult's new novel is A Spark of Light.

One of six books she recommended at The Week magazine:
Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward (2011).

Ward is, simply put, a legend in the making. This story haunts me, illustrating how the fierceness of family can be both tender and as destructive as the storm — Hurricane Katrina — that provides the novel's backdrop.

Salvage the Bones is among Peggy Frew's ten top books about "bad" mothers and Jenny Shanks's five least supervised children in literature.
