With my son and my publicist in tow, Shaun taught us the melody that an alpha, a beta, and a numbers wolf would use, and how to sing them in concert.

I started as the alpha — a deep intermittent tone, howling for five or six seconds and then listening to make decisions based on what I hear. Finally, my publicist, as the numbers wolf, created the illusion that there were many of her, with a howl that circled and pitched between the tones my son and I were using.

The most amazing thing happened: Having a character who is as connected to the natural world as Shaun is — one for whom family matters most, and who understands that death is a natural part of life — was vital to this novel. If a patient truly has an unrecoverable brain injury, the best one can hope for is chronic nursing home care.

Often the relatives who are put in the position of making decisions about life support are thinking about their own reticence to let a loved one go. Which of these two extremes Luke Warren best fits is up to the reader. I doubt it. Researching Lone Wolf, I was amazed at how thoughtful and intelligent these animals are. But the book began for me with a premise about the right to die and what happens when you have equal competing interests trying to make a decision about the health care of a loved one who is in a vegetative state.

I woke up one morning thinking about wolves and realized that wolf packs function as families. Everyone has a role, and if you act within the parameters of your role, the whole pack succeeds, and when that falls apart, so does the pack.

My position is, have a conversation long before you ever find yourself in that situation, because you will be doing the greatest service to your loved ones by not making them make these decisions for you. My husband is this amazing guy who is very strong and outdoorsy. Just pull the plug. As long as I have an outlet for my imagination, I like the idea of sticking around.

I have no idea.

Jodi Picoult

I am appalled. It is one of the greatest embarrassments about living in New Hampshire. I was writing Sing You Home when my oldest son came out to me. He is exactly the kind of kid you would want to settle in a place like this, because he is so smart, engaged and civic-minded.

Not at all. Picoult as usual probes intriguing matters of the heart while introducing her fans to subjects they might not otherwise explore. You can always count on Picoult for a terrific page-turner about a compelling subject.

Does the family that howls together stay together? This page-turner will keep you wondering. Seconds before our truck slams into the tree, I remember the first time I tried to save a life. My dad believed that infiltrating a pack was far more educational than observing, like biologists did.

Because of this, some people thought he was a genius. The rest thought he was insane. I had left the house I grew up in — the one my mom lived in, now, with her brand-spanking-new family, because I felt like a fifth wheel.

He even slept there, with his wolf family, while I stayed up and flicked through the TV channels. In March, though, that stupid T-Rex roared to an empty theme park. The only people who stayed on the off-season were my dad, who looked after his wolves, and Louie, a caretaker who covered the rest of the animals.

It felt like a ghost town, so I started hanging out at the enclosures after school -- close enough that Bedagi, the tester wolf, would pace on the other side of the fence, getting used to my scent. In return, my dad told me why he was worried about Mestawe: The night Mestawe gave birth, she seemed to be doing everything by the book. My father celebrated by opening a bottle of champagne, and letting me drink a glass. I wanted to see the babies, but my father said it would be weeks before they emerged.

Even Mestawe would stay in the den for a full week, feeding the pups every two hours. Only two nights later, though, my father shook me awake. I threw on my winter coat and boots and followed him to the enclosure where Mestawe was in her den.

She was wandering around, as far from her babies as she could get. He burrowed into the den and came out holding two tiny, wrinkled rats.

He passed these over to me; I tucked them inside my coat as he pulled out the last two pups. One looked worse off than the other three. I followed my dad to a tool shed that stood behind the trailer.

A blanket I recognized from the trailer — a fluffy red plaid — was inside a small cardboard box.

A hot water bottle underneath the blanket made it feel warm and almost like a belly; three of the babies immediately began to snuffle into the pockets of the blanket. The fourth was cold to the touch. Instead of putting her beside her brothers, I slipped her into my coat again, against my heart. When my father returned, he was holding baby bottles full of ESPlac, which is like formula, but for animals.

Every two hours, we fed the babies. It was an unspoken arrangement: On the third day, we named them. My father believed in using indigenous names for indigenous creatures, so all his wolf names came from the Abenaki language.

Nodah, which meant hear me, was the name we gave the biggest of the bunch, a noisy black ball of energy. Kina, or look here, was the troublemaker who got tangled in shoelaces or stuck under the flaps of the cardboard box. And Kita, or listen, hung back and watched us, his eyes never missing a thing. Their little sister I named Miguen, feather. I sometimes slept on my feet, dozing for a few minutes before I snapped awake again.

The whole time, I carried Miguen, until my arms felt empty without her in them.

What others are saying about Lone Wolf

Two hours later, Miguen started shaking uncontrollably. I begged my father to drive to a vet, to the hospital, to someone who could help. I cried so hard that he bundled the other pups into a box and carried them out to the battered truck he drove. The box sat between us in the front seat and Miguen shivered beneath my coat.

I knew the minute it happened; she was lighter in my arms. Like a shell. The alpha is strategic; the beta has that iconic Hollywood howl, and the numbers wolf creates the illusion that there are more wolves in the pack then there actually are. With my son and my publicist in tow, Shaun taught us the melody that an alpha, a beta, and a numbers wolf would use, and how to sing them in concert.

I started as the alpha — a deep intermittent tone, howling for five or six seconds and then listening to make decisions based on what I hear. Finally, my publicist, as the numbers wolf, created the illusion that there were many of her, with a howl that circled and pitched between the tones my son and I were using.

The most amazing thing happened: the packs all around us began to howl back. Having a character who is as connected to the natural world as Shaun is — one for whom family matters most, and who understands that death is a natural part of life — was vital to this novel. If a patient truly has an unrecoverable brain injury, the best one can hope for is chronic nursing home care.

Often the relatives who are put in the position of making decisions about life support are thinking about their own reticence to let a loved one go.

Which of these two extremes Luke Warren best fits is up to the reader. Are wolves the new zombies? I doubt it. Researching Lone Wolf, I was amazed at how thoughtful and intelligent these animals are.

But the book began for me with a premise about the right to die and what happens when you have equal competing interests trying to make a decision about the health care of a loved one who is in a vegetative state.

I woke up one morning thinking about wolves and realized that wolf packs function as families. Everyone has a role, and if you act within the parameters of your role, the whole pack succeeds, and when that falls apart, so does the pack. Do you have a strong position on how end-of-life decisions should be handled? My position is, have a conversation long before you ever find yourself in that situation, because you will be doing the greatest service to your loved ones by not making them make these decisions for you.

Does your family know your wishes? My husband is this amazing guy who is very strong and outdoorsy. Just pull the plug. As long as I have an outlet for my imagination, I like the idea of sticking around. You started a mini firestorm recently about white male authors getting a lot more attention than female authors.

Has anything changed? What's behind the bias? I have no idea. Some New Hampshire legislators are trying to ban gay marriage. Are you involved in this issue? I am appalled. It is one of the greatest embarrassments about living in New Hampshire. I was writing Sing You Home when my oldest son came out to me. He is exactly the kind of kid you would want to settle in a place like this, because he is so smart, engaged and civic-minded.

Are you the biggest New Hampshire celebrity? I really doubt it. Can you name any others? Dan Brown used to live here. Adam Sandler grew up in New Hampshire. Several of your books have been made into movies. Have you enjoyed that? Not at all. In researching this book, you learned to howl. Do you ever break out that skill in the mall? If I get drunk enough. Because Luke had gotten several packs of wolves to accept him as a bona fide member, some people thought he was a genius; some though he was insane.

What was your initial assessment? Did you change your mind? What kind of big brother was Edward to Cara? The policemen have information about the accident. What does the read find out about Cara? Does this change your sympathies concerning Cara?

Anyone who has had a loved one in the hospital recognizes the medical jargon and how difficult it is to follow.

Jodi Picoult

How do you feel about the interchange between Edward and Dr. Luke describes in detail his first experience being in an enclosure with wolves. Do you think you could do it?

Would you consider it romantic? Why or why not? Luke is an organ donor.

Does that help Edward in his decision? Cara states that she knows why Edward left. When Luke went into the wild, Edward had to take care of the finances.

Is this fair or right for a 15 year old?

See a Problem?

At the time, Edward was only fifteen. Why was that kind of responsibility given to Edward? Should it have been? Was Edward wrong to allow Cara into the wolf area? Was he being irresponsible? One of my favorite things about reading a novel by Picoult is her use of voice. In this novel however, the voices of each character were so similar as to be indistinguishable from one another. If there weren't names at the beginning of each chapter, I would have said this was a first person omnicient narrator.

Furthermore, the plot was at times contrived and at other times wholly unrealistic. The "surprise" ending was so poorly done that it was truly unbelievable. The only redeeming quality of the book, for me, was the information about wolves. I found her research to be fascinating and wished more could have been incorporated about them.How do you feel about his actions?

The first thing he taught me were the rankings of a wolf pack. Amazing piece by Picoult. What examples show this?

Have you enjoyed that? The book makes you think about these and other questions,including what is a family? And Kita, or listen, hung back and watched us, his eyes never missing a thing.

I sometimes slept on my feet, dozing for a few minutes before I snapped awake again.
