Her fears come true when the bullying begins, sending Melly to the bathroom in tears. Just as Rose is about to follow after her daughter, a massive explosion goes off in the kitchen, sending the room into chaos. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. She believes she has accomplished both, only to discover that Amanda, for an unknown reason, ran back into the school once out of Rose's sight. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda's injuries on her. In the days that follow, Rose's life starts to fall to pieces, Amanda's mother decides to sue, her marriage is put to the test, and worse, when her daughter returns to school, the bullying only intensifies. Rose must take matters into her own hands and get down to the truth of what really happened that fateful day in order to save herself, her marriage and her family.In the way that Look Again had readers questioning everything they thought they knew about family, Save M e will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. Lisa Scottoline is writing about real issues that resonate with real women, and the results are emotional, heartbreaking and honest.

AN AWESOME LISTEN!

Another great thriller from Scottline, and nice to have finished it on the drive down to Philadelphia for PLA Conference. Rose McKenna is a young mother who has volunteered at her daughter's school as a lunch mom because she is worried about reported teasing by other kid's. Her daughter, Melly, is in third grade and has a large birthmark on her cheek. Melly is self-conscious about it, and Rose is aware of that and worries about her fitting in. When Rose sees some other girls teasing Melly, she approaches them and reminds them of the school's anti-bullying policy.
Unexpectedly there is an explosion and subsequent fire and Rose has to decide whether to help the girls she is talking to, or go look for Melly who has run to the washroom. Even after Rose makes her move, she keeps questioning her decision and feels the need to find out all aspects of what happened that day. Despite her husband's advice, Rose keeps digging and her actions put her into another life-threatening situation.
With lots of twists and turns, interesting characters, and a good plot, Scottoline pulls off another great read.

This book introduced me to a new side to Lisa Scottoline. Though the plot was a little far fetched, it was still quite compelling. I really enjoyed it. 8 of 10 for me.
