Damaged Lisa Scottoline read online review & book description:

“Scottoline writes riveting thrillers that keep me up all night, with plots that twist and turn.” –Harlan Coben

One boy. One lawyer. One chance for justice.

Ten-year-old Patrick O'Brien is a natural target at school. Shy, dyslexic, and small for his age, he tries to hide his first-grade reading level from everyone: from his classmates, from the grandfather who cares for him, and from the teachers who are supposed to help him. But the real trouble begins when Patrick is accused of attacking a school aide. The aide promptly quits and sues the boy, his family, and the school district. Patrick's grandfather turns to the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio for help and Mary DiNunzio is on the case. Soon Mary becomes Patrick's true champion and his only hope for security and justice. But there is more to the story than meets the eye and Patrick might be more troubled than he seems. With twists at every turn and secrets about the family coming to light, Mary DiNunzio might have found the case that can make her a true protector, or break her heart...

With Lisa Scottoline’s trademark emotional depth and fast-paced action, Damaged will have readers riveted to the last page as they root for the beloved characters and their fight for justice.

    Lisa Scottoline is the best. She knows how to weave a story to hold your attention, it was difficult to put this book down. All the while when reading, I was trying to guess what happened to Edward and what was to become with Patrick. This was a very well written book another gem by Lisa Scottoline.

    This is a well written mystery about a devoted and honest lawyer Mary, and her loyalty to and compassion for a child with special needs. She is an endearing lawyer any person would be lucky to have on their side. The book highlights the legal, social, emotional, and heart breaking difficulties of getting help and justice for bullied and sexually abused children in special education, who are most vulnerable to abusers and bullying from classmates. I thought some of the wedding preparation parts were boring, so I skipped ahead. The ponzi scheme to steal from and cheat Patrick's elderly grandfather was especially current and highlights serious problems many elderly face, even smart accountants. Patrick's fairy tale ending was almost too good to be true, but I loved it! And I loved Mary's wedding too!! Machiavelli is perfect as the opposing lawyer representing a child rapist, but even he drops his client finally. Glad the thieves got what they deserved too!! Good book! I felt the outrage and emotional trauma just reading about Mary's clients! She's got courage and tenacity I wish every child advocate had. Bravo!
