Book of the Week: Small Great Things

This one will stick with you for a while.  Admittedly if it takes me more than a week to finish a book– that isn’t a good sign.  It took me almost two months to finish this book.  However, because so many people STRONGLY recommended it to me, I decided to persevere.  I’m thankful I did. 

I wasn’t sure how Picoult was going to come up with an ending that would satisfy me but the SHOCKING TWIST at the end was perfection.

Reportedly, Viola Davis and Julia Roberts are teaming up for a movie adaptation of “Small Great Things.”  I beg you to read it before the movie hype begins.  The book is always better than the movie.

This quote I found from the Washington Post nails the description of this book:  “Frank, uncomfortably introspective and right on the day’s headlines, it will challenge her readers…The difficult self awareness is what sustains this book…forcing engaged readers to meditate on their own beliefs and actions along with these characters….It’s also exciting to have a high-profile writer like Picoult take an earnest risk to expand our cultural conversation about race and prejudice.”
