Small Great Things — Jodi Picoult

Read Date: March 28, 2018
Rating: 4.5/5
Format: E-book

An incredibly charged saga of a workplace disagreement between an African American nurse and white supremacist patient and the subsequent aftermath. Picoult has crafted a vitally important novel for today’s society; multiple facets of beliefs of race relations become human in her cast of characters. Readers may be made uncomfortable at times by the bluntness with which inequality is addressed, but necessarily so. This discomfort opens the reader’s eyes to what is really happening in a society that so wishes to view itself as post-racial, and one really evaluates his or her own role in the current dialogue. Small Great Things is a prime example of the ideal balance between a literary success and an agent for change.
