Small Great Things

'To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century'

(1)

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

Are you Racist?

Two years after "Leaving Time" Jodi Picoult has finally published a new book for adults. And let me say, it's nothing short of stunningly eye-opening. Ruth has been to prestigious schools, got her nursing degree at Yale and has worked as a competent Labor & Delivery Nurse for more than 20 years. Still, she suddenly finds herself being tried for murdering an infant. Why? Because a white supremacist didn't want her attending to his newborn son, due to her black skin color. "Small Great Things" is an amazing novel about open and hidden racism, power and the not so just legal system that will stay with you long after you finished reading it. The story is told by Ruth, an African American L & D Nurse, Kennedy, her Caucasian lawyer, and Turk, the white supremacist whose son Ruth supposedly killed. By letting those three very different people speak for themselves, you get to know them and their views pretty well and it becomes apparent very soon, that not everything is as it initially seems. For me, this book was shocking, saddening and eye-opening all at once. I got reminded how the legal system works: More often that not it's all about making money and saving someone's ass - excuse my French - instead of serving justice, which is just frustrating. What got me the most, though, was the fact that even though I don't think of myself as a very prejudiced person, I realized that I am (as almost everybody else to some extent). Racism doesn't start and end with being hostile towards a person with different skin color, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. Seemingly small things like assuming a book character to be Caucasian just because they are not described as African American, Asian or Latino is really not that different. I can whole-heartedly recommend "Small Great Things" to anyone who is interested in a well thought-through story that's not only suspenseful and surprising, but also thought-provoking.
