Inhaltsangabe

Winner, 2017 APA Audie Awards - Multi-Voiced Performance

This stunning new novel is Jodi Picoult at her finest - complete with unflinching insights, richly layered characters, and a pause-resisting plot with a gripping moral dilemma at its heart.

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.

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.

Great story!

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.

One word: AMAZING!

Dieses Buch ist fantastisch! Die Charaktere sind (typisch Jodi Picoult) ausgefeilt haben Ecken und Kanten. Man fühlt mit ihnen... man versteht sie.. beide Seiten... man leidet mit ihnen... man empfindet aber auch Abscheu teilweise... sie beschreibt alles so real so detailliert dass man nur mitfühlen kann (ganz gleich in welche Richtung)! Das Buch behandelt ein Thema das alle kennen! Rassismus! Der in unseren Tagen trotz aller Vorgeschichte akuteller ist denn je! LEIDER! Danke für dieses Buch

An eye-opener - definite must read

I'm not much of reader about ethical/racial differences and like many I believe that I'm not a racist myself. The notion of active vs. passive racism as well as court procedures talked about in this book were striking. It's not only about the racial differences, the book captures the real human feelings behind these topics so emotionally, so honest and so well. It keeps you curious about the plot, but most importantly it makes you think about how you view the world, it challenges you.

If you were to read one book about racial discrimination, read this one. Not dry, but intense and honest. Made me change my perception. Thank you.

Surprised!

This has been a great audiobook. The topic is a mighty difficult one, specially in the U.S. The story has been fascinating, quite credible, with realistic characters. Twists and turns keep reader's/listener's attention always high. Very enjoyable and to a certain extent, also an eye opener. This is my first experience with this author and I am positively surprised! The readers (and the production) are very professional and add to enjoy this whole audiobook. And yes, I would definitely recommend it without reservations!

Best book I've read in a very long time

The narration was superb. This story was told from three different viewpoints, with perfect character development. Although it's a work of fiction, it is not hard to imagine that it could easily be true. It was a real eye-opener for me and I had a hard time pausing... I highly recommend!
