'Small Great Things is the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written ... It will challenge her readers ... [and] expand our cultural conversation about race and prejudice.' - The Washington Post
When 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 that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.
'A gripping courtroom drama ... Given the current political climate it is quite prescient ... This is a writer who understands her characters inside and out.' - Roxane Gay, The New York Times Book Review

Small Great Things is a masterful book that brings readers to consider their own privilege within society.The story follows a white supremacist family who forbids an African American nurse from touching their newborn. However, the nurse acts and fails to save him when he goes into cardiac rest. Through multiple point of view, readers can explore the feelings of every key character. - Anica (QBD)
