Publisher's Summary

The new audiobook from number one best-selling author 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.

Spectacular!

Difficult topic, but so effective in addressing the white elephant in the corner. Well done Jodi! It is a book that changed me, my thoughts.

Change start with you! Do small great things to change the view of others !

brilliant book.

This book made me reassess my reaction to racism. I thought it was well researched and, of course, extremely well written by Ms Picoult. My Mum and I always exchanged Jodi Picoult's books and discussed them. Mum passed away last year and it's my first book without her but she would have loved it.

Thought provoking and engaging.

Would you listen to Small Great Things again? Why?

I really enjoyed this book and have already recommended it to friends and family. It covers some difficult topics and raises important questions about discrimination.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It was great to hear from each character in turn so you get a thorough insight into their point of view, whether you agree or not. Each character goes on a journey and has changed significantly by the end of the book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book makes you re-evaluate your own perspective on racial prejudice. It is brilliantly written and wonderfully told. It makes you feel uncomfortable at times and certainly made me think about my own behaviour.

Any additional comments?

The best Jodie Picoult book I've read to date.

A very thought provoking story. <br />

Has made me examine and reevaluate my own beliefs and behaviors. Very enlightening read. A little frightening as well.
