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

Eye opening

When I began reading this book I almost didn’t want to keep reading because it was so confronting. White supremacy and racism are very hard topics to read about, they make you squirm and question your own beliefs. As usual, Jodi Picoult takes you on a journey through each characters emotions and views until you understand and sympathise a little with them all. Well worth finishing.

Spot on

One of my favourite reads from Jodi Picoult to date. I love the graceful swings between each character slowly building a discussion around some very ‘sensitive’ topics. Allowing the mind to explore and relate. More of this is needed and I can’t wait for the movie so this can reach those that don’t read. Hopefully the rawness and beauty of this novel isn’t lost.

Heart wrenching

My absolute favourite of all of Jodi’s books. I am a little biased because I’m a nurse and can so easily relate to the circumstances, but the entire book is truly heart wrenching.
