I would like to introduce this week’s TBT spotlight; Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. This is a multiple point of view stand-alone novel. This novel has been considered Adult and Young Adult because of it’s varying points of view. This is one of my favorite novels. If you have not read Jodi Picoult I definitely recommend this book as well as, The Tenth Circle and My Sister’s Keeper.
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.
