Nineteen Minutesby Jodi Picoult
Synopses & Reviews
Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy.
Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens — until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened before her very own eyes — or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show — destroying the closest of friendships and families. Nineteen Minutes asks what it means to be different in our society, who has the right to judge someone else, and whether anyone is ever really who they seem to be.
"Jodi Picoult's books explore all the shades of gray in a world too often judged in black and white." St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Picoult spins fast-paced tales of family dysfunction, betrayal, and redemption.... [Her] depiction of these rites of contemporary adolescence is exceptional: unflinching, unjudgmental, utterly chilling." The Washington Post
"A master of the craft of storytelling." AP Newswire
