THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
'Incredibly thought-provoking Sun

After years of cruel bullying from his classmates, Peter Houghton snaps one morning, and in nineteen minutes, ten residents of the town of Sterling are dead. When the case goes to trial, the reeling town is determined to seek justice for the innocents Peter killed.

But as the trial unfolds, Peter's testimony casts light on the terrible role the residents of Sterling have played in turning a sweet, loving boy into a killer, and it isn't long before Sterling's illusions of innocence find themselves shattered forever. . .

THE BOOK OF TWO WAYS, Jodi's stunning new novel about life, death and missed opportunities is available to pre-order now.

Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical . . . Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace.

Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical ... Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace. Inhabited by contradictory, flawed individuals, this intelligent novel draws suspense, moral complexity and a stunning final twist out of what initially seemed a monochrome situation The Times A horrifying, close to real-life read, this novel is incredibly thought-provoking Sun A gripping and chilling read, NINETEEN MINUTES is reminiscent of Arthur Miller's play The Crucible in the way it captures the claustrophobic atmosphere of small town America, where members of a community struggle to cope with their grief and shortcoming in a world they hardly recognize anymore Daily Express Slick, emotive and as readable as ever Daily Mail

I definitely recommend reading this book!

I really liked the fact that you get to know many different perspectives, it helps you to understand the story and especially to be able to know why the characters act the way they do. The book is not only about the main conflict - bullying and the shooting - it's also about friendship, family, conflicts in a parent-child-relationship and the biggest one is the question of guilt. While reading the book, I changed my opinion many times and every time I got to learn something new, I started to view the story from a different point and sympathised with different characters. The whole story made me think a lot and I still think about it a lot, although I've finished it a while ago. It's definitely worth reading and I have to admit, I would have loved to analise parts of the book/characterised people or outlined certain parts of the conflicts in the book at school, because there are so many things I need to talk about or write about now. For those, who feel the same: There are several questions to discuss at the end of the book. All in all, I totally recommend this story to anyone, you won't regret reading it.
