She figures everything out. The subplot with Kristen, the special ed teacher, was a waste of time.

The same girls Synopsis: Save Me starts off with a suburban mom Reesburgh, PA , Rose McKenna working as a lunch mother at her daughter's school when suddenly an explosion rips through the school's cafeteria, killing three staff members. The same girls who teased her daughter Melly for having a rose colored birthmark on her face just minutes before the fire, and Rose confronted the same girls about bullying.
After being told she might face a charges, Rose, her husband Leo who is a lawyer, and her attorney discuss a defense plan that includes filing a lawsuit against the school for the lack of training for fire drills. Rose takes it upon herself to investigate the truth behind the mysterious fire. She enlists the help of a construction worker at the school who may know answers, as well as a visit to a local factory where she unravels more questions and answers regarding the fire. Rose slowly unravels the truth, and is forced to face a dark secret from her own past.
Review: The jacket description on the cover of the book leads the reader to believe Rose is a dedicated mother who would do anything for her child, but I didn't know Scottoline would instead blur the lines between mother and superhero; dramatic fiction and young adult mystery.
The novel begins with much promise, as the synopsis above indicates. The story sounds exciting, thrilling, and has potential. A school explosion, a mom saving her own daughter, other children getting injured in the fire with the hero to blame, as well as the swell of the media, possible criminal charges, and haunting secrets from Rose's past.
All the great markings of a great story Unfortunately, the story as a whole lacks realism and substance. The story Scottoline creates is simply absurd and far-fetched: A school explosion that is actually a conspiracy due to a politician's mistress working at the school? A small community turning a mother into a pariah for saving kids in a fire but accusing her of leaving someone else's daughter behind only to be injured and questioning her motives for saving her own daughter?
A mom who drops her kids off with family friends her husband is out of town on a court case and he rarely checks in so she can sneak off in her mini van to do detective work with a construction worker and make an incognito visit to a local factory to get answers about a possible murder cover-up? This storyline would not even be successful as a movie plot on Lifetime Movie Network. Besides the story mimicking a Nancy Drew sleuth novel, the characters are one-dimensional and the dialogue is unrealistic.
The way she portrays the characters, the things they say, and the way they act in certain situations is impractical and unlikely, behaviors and dialogue you might find in a young adult novel or in a cheesy after school movie. I think it's obvious to say this novel was a grave disappointment, which is surprising because Lisa Scottoline has written many fantastic novels.
This story had a lot of promise based on the description on the jacket as well as the set up in the beginning of the story, but my expectations for this stand-alone novel fell short. The story lacked character development, realistic dialogue, and mystery the entire way through.
If you're looking for a good dramatic novel with a lot of strong characters, thick plotlines, and excellent writing, pick up a Jodi Picoult novel.
Asheville Ghost Walking Tour and Mystery The only reason I stuck with it nearly halfway was because I wanted to find out what exactly "Garren" was. It was a quick read, which was what I was looking for. Love Advice from the Great Duke of Hell unfins. Hopefully I saved you the trouble, girlfriend. Cara, a high school senior with a love of whales, volunteers part time for Liberty Charters, a whale watching tours business.
If you're looking for a nail-biting, edge of your seat mystery, pick up a different Lisa Scottoline novel. If you're looking for a superhero book, read a graphic novel. But sadly, I would not recommend this book for any reason. With that said, please don't judge Lisa Scottoline's other works based on this novel alone. Save Me is by no means an accurate representation of her writing skills or creative imagination.
I believe Scottoline wanted to try something new but was too far out of her comfort zone, and Save Me is the result of that.
I would recommend her other books, but definitely not this one. Dec 26, Allie rated it did not like it Shelves: horrendous.
I have tried to read chick lit before, assuming it would be enjoyable in that vapid, lazy way that playing Bejewelled on my phone and clicking through facebook profiles of friends of friends of friends can be. I picked up a Janet Evanovich or someone book in a Johannesburg hostel once, and lay by the pool with it for 10 minutes before giving up in a rage. I should have learnt my lesson there. Alas, I took 'Save Me' on holiday with me because flipping through the first few pages was a suitable procrastination activity to avoid packing, and the dialogue was so ridiculous and somehow so All American that I kind of wanted to keep reading.
I simultaneously loved and loathed this book, and don't know how to rate it or write about it. Also, I remember my family accompanying mum on a business trip to France when I was about 13, and reading Lisa Scottoline's first book because I had run out of my books and only had my parents' 'adult' books.
In hindsight, it may have been the kind of shockingly "easy" book that Save Me is, to have given me the confidence to peruse all aisles of book shops from then on. I've always meant to go back and read more of her books. This book, though, was fucking terrible. I kept reading lines like 'because he didn't yet know that all moms [sic] are superheroes' and other.. It was hilarious. You have to.
