A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The best books make you see differently. This is one of them. The eye-opening new novel from Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.

When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father.

What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.

It is about opening your eyes.

Media Reviews
There is a fire raging, and we have two choices: we can turn our backs, or we can try to fight it * (from the author's afterword) *
The most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written * Washington Post *
A thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about race and prejudice that shows Picoult at her very best. * Woman & Home *
No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things . . . The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions * Metro *
The book makes for a harrowing and at times heartbreaking read but is absolutely brilliant. It deserves to be read by everyone -- ***** * Sun *
The narrative rips along at a great pace, she writes dialogue like a pro, and her suspenseful control of the courtroom scenes is masterfully done. * Independent *
[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 *
