The eye-opening new novel from Jodi Picoult with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility."To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century' Reader ReviewWhen a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.Praise for Small Great Things:'No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things ...The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions' (Metro)'A thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about race and prejudice that shows Picoult at her very best' (Woman & Home)'The narrative rips along at a great pace, she writes dialogue like a pro, and her suspenseful control of the courtroom scenes is masterfully done' (Independent)show more

Review quote

There is a fire raging, and we have two choices: we can turn our backs, or we can try to fight it (from the author's afterword) No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things ... The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions Metro A thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about race and prejudice that shows Picoult at her very best. Woman & Home the book makes for a harrowing and at times heartbreaking read but is absolutely brilliant. It deserves to be read by everyone -- ***** Sun The narrative rips along at a great pace, she writes dialogue like a pro, and her suspenseful control of the courtroom scenes is masterfully done. Independent [Picoult] offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today, both overt and subtle. Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book. Booklist, starred review The most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written Washington Post No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things ... The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions Metro She is the master of her craft ... and humanity is what Picoult does best Sunday Telegraph As harrowing as it is readable Independent on THE STORYTELLER With characters that hook the reader into their stories, a well-researched and thought-provoking plot, and an acute eye for detail, this is a novel that deals with big issues: good and evil, forgiveness and redemption, love and justice. I read it in two long sittings, desperate to know the outcome. Woman & Home on THE STORYTELLER It's hard to exaggerate how well Picoult writes Financial Timesshow more
