    Number-one New York Times Best Seller

    With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead listeners to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, Small Great Things is the stunning new pause-resister from Jodi Picoult.

    Soon to be a major motion picture

    “[Picoult] offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today, both overt and subtle. Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book.” (Booklist [starred review])

    Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than 20 years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? 

    Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family - especially her teenage son - as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others - and themselves - might be wrong. 

    With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion - and doesn’t offer easy answers. Small Great Things is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.

    Praise for Small Great Things

    Small Great Things is the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written.... It will challenge her readers...[and] expand our cultural conversation about race and prejudice.” (The Washington Post)

    “A novel that puts its finger on the very pulse of the nation that we live in today...a fantastic read from beginning to end, as can always be expected from Picoult, this novel maintains a steady, page-turning pace that makes it hard for readers to put down.” (San Francisco Book Review)

    Highly recommended

    This book is both entertaining and educating. The characters have a lot of depth. Racism is much more diverse than most of us acknowledge and notice.

    What we believe to be true.

    All people should read or listen to this book. It seems that we collectively forgot how we truly feel and live our lives. We are ignorant of the pain we cause by this losing connection to parts of our society we conveniently do not belong to, even if we do not consciously think we do not belong to them.
    Can we learn to really, deeply connect? Can we offer the "others" our hearts and ears, so we can all heal?

    Sehr gelungen

    Alle drei Sprecher sind passend und klasse. Die Geschichte ist spannend und fesselnd!! Vielleicht ist es bisweilen etwas dick aufgetragen und dadurch auch hier und da einmal etwas zu klischeehaft. Aber der Gesamteindruck hat mich überzeugt.

    Very touching thanks to the 3 authentic storytellers! Sensitive and important topic, excellent discussed by the author. I'm really immersed in the story and will somehow miss it.
