'If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.' Martin Luther King Jr..

'I don't want that nurse touching my baby.' Those are the instructions from the newborn child's parents. However, when the baby goes into cardiac arrest, Ruth, a nurse of twenty years' experience, sees no option but to assist. But the baby dies. And Ruth is charged with negligent homicide...

Ruth is shattered and bewildered as she tries to come to terms with her situation. She finds different kinds of support from her sister, a fiery radical, and her teenage son, but it is to Kennedy McQuarrie, a white middle-class lawyer, to whom she entrusts her case, and her future...

As the two come to develop a truer understanding of each other's lives, they begin to doubt the beliefs they each hold most dear. In order for the privileged to prosper, they come to realise, others have to suffer. Racism takes many forms, and is reinforced and underpinned by the structures of our society...

In gripping dramas like Nineteen Minutes, My Sister's Keeper and The Pact, Jodi Picoult has explored the big issues of our time through characters whose lives resonate with us. Here we see once again her unrivalled ability to immerse us in a story whose issues will linger with us long after the final page has been finished...

As soon as I opened Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult I was immediately drawn in by the story. Every chapter is seen from one of the 3 main characters' perspective; the black labour & delivery nurse being accused by a white supremacist of murdering his newborn infant and the determined lawyer defending her. In each chapter it will challenge you to see their point of view. Jodi Picoult is an author who spends a lot of time researching and also tries to gain an understanding of the complex social issues she is writing about. You can sense this each time you read the perspective of Ruth the nurse, and Turk the white supremacist – both ideologies that I have never experienced. I lost a lot of sleep as I couldn't stop at the end of each chapter, I had to know what happened next. Jodi creates interesting, likable characters and presents a gripping courtroom drama. This book challenged me to consider racism in a different light. If you like reading authors such as Christos Tsiolkas give Jodi Picoult a go! - Courtney (QBD)

Small great things
Jodi Picoult has again targeted another of society’s big issues with her latest courtroom drama novel. Prejudice and race is at the heart of the story as we follow the experience of an African American labour and delivery nurse whose world is turned upside down when she comes in contact with a white supremacist and his baby. Thought provoking and heart wrenching, the topics on display in this book are relevant and will stay with you well after you turn the last page. Jodi Picoult has a way of jumping into the shoes of others and seeing things through others eyes, raising questions that you never thought to consider before. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and thoroughly recommend Ms Picoults newest novel to anyone who enjoys a great read.
