Whats the title of the story about the husband who tells the wife that their baby has died but really it has downs syndrome and he's given it away?

Are they twins and she keeps the girls?

No, its not Jodi Picoult. The front cover has a yellow childs dress on it, kind of floating.

Thats the one, just found it myself. So is it worth ordering or not?

Yes,i enjoyed it. I read loads of books that it would take ages for me to remember but this one had stuck in my head so it must be good.

I didn't like it but don't let that stop you. People either love or hate this book, there's no middle ground and you'll never know which way you fall till you read it grin
Personally I felt manipulated (not in a nice way) and I thought the writing was clunky.
