Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING BOOK.



SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS AND VIOLA DAVIS.


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 latest stunning page-turner from Jodi Picoult.


'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
