Publisher Description

'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

With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, Small Great Things is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult.

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

The Brooks Books - bookclub

This was our first book club book and we gave it a 3.5. The book itself was well written and most of us loved it. A couple of us found Turks transformation to be a little to quick or over the top but all in all a good read. Happy to recommend to friends and other book clubs.

Unexpectedly good

I wasn’t sure whether this book was for me originally, and how the content would be handled, but after reading the Author’s Notes it gave some great context. I loved this book - it kept me guessing and I couldn’t put it down. Definitely a story that stays with you long after the final page...
