A very difficult subject to tackle; abortion from the point of view of many characters. I created a chart to keep track of everyone. The author did a great job with the individual stories and their reasoning for having or not having an abortion. I hadn’t selected this book on my own, it was part of my book club. I went straight into the book without reading the synopsis, so I wasn’t quite sure where I was at first. The story begins by talking about The Center, then a gun-man (George) who gets into the building, and the hostage situation begins. Once George was inside, the story went backward. The end surprised me! There is a lot to think about in this novel.
