Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult Book Review

Plot: The Town of Sterling, New Hampshire is a quiet town, where not much excitement happens. All that changes when the small town is rattled with a devastating, violent tragedy. A town that was once recognized for it's very minimal crime record is now known for one of the most horrendous of crimes. A School Shooting. Review: This is one of my favourite Jodi Picoult books to date, all though that list pretty much contains all of her books, There hasn't been a Jodi Picoult book that I've disliked yet. Nineteen Minutes is a very emotionally charged book. Almost all emotions rise to the surface with this book, Sadness, Anger, Sympathy, Hate...Jodi Picoult is known for her twists and surprises and this book didn't fall short. Just when I thought I had it figured out, something would spin the story into another direction that I wasn't expecting. In the Acknowledgements Jodi Picoult writes " To The Thousands of Kids out there who are a little bit different, a little bit scared, a little bit unpopular: this one's for you." That's exactly what this book is about, People who struggle to fit in, which is everyone at some point or another. In this book Jodi Picoult gives a voice to those people. This book is a definite must read. Make sure you keep the Kleenex close by for this one.
