#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER a€c With richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race, Small Great Things is the stunning new page-turner from Jodi Picoult. SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE a€œ[Picoult] offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today, both overt and subtle. Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book.a€a€”Booklist (starred review) Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty yearsa€™ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that shea€™s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and dona€™t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene? Ruth hesitates before performing CPR and, as a result, is charged with a serious crime. Kennedy McQuarrie, a white public defender, takes her case but gives unexpected advice: Kennedy insists that mentioning race in the courtroom is not a winning strategy. Conflicted by Kennedya€™s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her familya€”especially her teenage sona€”as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each othera€™s trust, and come to see that what theya€™ve been taught their whole lives about othersa€”and themselvesa€”might be wrong.
