A Book that will make you think

Jody Picoult has written a book that will stay with you long after you finish it. This is a good choice for book clubs. Conversation about difficult topics is the first step in healing our fractured country. ( )

This is such and eye opening story about daily life for people of color in the midst of what most caucasions consider ordinary middle class life. Jodi did an amazing amount of research as she wrote and before publication so that she could reflect authenticity. ( )

Wow. A very controversial topic that was tackled very well. This story is about Ruth Jefferson, a labor & delivery nurse at a hospital where she's worked for 20 years. One day at work, there is an incident that leaves her having to make a difficult decision and then the consequences afterward due to her decision. At the high level, this book is about racism. Jodi Picoult is known for conducting her own research and almost immersing herself in that research so that she can learn everything she can learn about the particular topic she's writing about. Her approach to this book is no different. She even wrote, in her "Author's Note" at the end of the book that in writing this book, it forced her to take a hard look at herself. I could not put this book down. ( )

I don’t usually read Jodi Picoult. I don’t like sad, and most of hers are. But I kept hearing about Small Great Things, so I decided to give it a go, and I am so glad I did! It’s not an easy read. It’s powerful, it’s heart wrenching, it is real. It will really make you step back and take a look inside yourself. It is a book I will think about for a long time. ( )
