'To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century' Real Reader Review 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 prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.
It is about opening your eyes. Praise for Small Great Things: 'No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things ...The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions' (Metro) 'A thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about race and prejudice that shows Picoult at her very best' (Woman & Home) 'The narrative rips along at a great pace, she writes dialogue like a pro, and her suspenseful control of the courtroom scenes is masterfully done' (Independent)
