Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult is a thought provoking examination of racism in America today. What a timely topic! Readers say it's a compelling, can't put it down drama with a trademark twist...
It's on the stands now and should be a great read...especially if you're a Picoult fan, and there are many! ( I'm not, but may give this one a try ...)
SMALL GREAT THINGS BY JODI PICOULT
Labor and delivery nurse Ruth Jefferson has found herself on trial for hesitating to perform CPR on a baby in cardiac arrest — a baby whose white supremacist parents requested Ruth (who is black) stay away from their child. Now, she must work with Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender who insists she doesn’t bring up race in court. But as the case becomes a national media sensation, both Ruth and Kennedy find themselves reexamining everything they’ve come to understand about justice, compassion, race, and privilege.
