    A riveting but disturbing story . . .

    Having read all of Jodi Piccoult's novels I was anxious to read "Small Great Things". Piccoult's previous books have dealt with engaging stories, some more powerful than others, and "Small Great Things" tells a very powerful, if disturbing, story. Ruth Jefferson, an experienced Black nurse in a Connecticut hospital, is faced with a very serious dilemma when white supremacist parents object to her dealing with their newborn baby. When the boy dies, Ruth is charged in his death. "Small Great Things" highlights the imbedded racism in American society, and sadly current events mirror much of what Ruth experiences. Piccoult does not shy away from describing, in Ruth's voice, the discrimination felt by Blacks today. I found the book a riveting but disturbing read.

    Best

    I loved this book. I was hesitant to read it, but as soon as I started, I couldn't put it down. Picoult mirrors what is happening in America right now. My heart goes out too everyone who has been a victim of racism. This book made me laugh, made me cry and made me smile. I highly recommend this book for ANYONE!

    Small Great Things

    A fantastic, could not put it down read!!!! Jodi never disappoints. It never ceases to amaze me how much I can learn from her books. She inspires me, and makes me want to be a writer.

    Uncomfortably Thought-Provoking

    When I realized that this book explored the world of White Supremacists, I was very uncomfortable and didn't know if I could go on reading. I had to though and I am so glad I did! As a Canadian I like to proudly think that race is not the issue that it is in the USA. This book has made me totally rethink my very white perspective.

    A Heartbreaking Novel

    Overall I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed that the author chose to tell the story through the perspective of it's three main characters. While I thought some of the characters' actions less believable than others, the author explains her research and experiences involving in developing these characters. A vital moral lesson.
