Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy.
Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens - until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened before her very own eyes - or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show, destroying the closest of friendships and families.

Amazing

Any additional comments?

This is my favorite book of hers so far. The way the story was written in unbelievable. I love how she wrote in all the views of the people involved in the school shooting. I was so amazed by the twist that came later on towards the end. This is defiantly a good book for all families to read, as it covers a lot of important topics.

Could be better narrated

the story line got me hooked from the very start. i love how the book starts by building this character of a boy that ends up the way e did. However, my favorite part was the trail!
the only thing i didnt enjoy was the narration. it was kind monotonic and i found myself a bit bored with her sometimes. I wish it was more interactive with the intensity of the story.
overall, i would recommend it

Nineteen Minutes - Although subject matter not nice, good storytelling

Jodi does write book that give you an all perspective of the characters in the book.
Narration was OK sometimes I felt there could have been a bit more passion in her voice

thought provoking

Worth your time to listen to this story. I nearly rejected the book early on as it was a bit slow and confusing initially setting the scene and introducing the characters. However, once set it had a thought provoking storyline.
