Sterling is a small, ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens — until the day its complacency is shattered by a shocking act of violence. In the aftermath, the town’s residents must not only seek justice in order to begin healing but also come to terms with the role they played in the tragedy. For them, the lines between truth and fiction, right and wrong, insider and outsider have been obscured forever. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, could be the state’s best witness, but she can’t remember what happened in front of her own eyes. And as the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show, destroying the closest of friendships and families.
Nineteen minutes is yet another great book by Jodi Picoult. I must warm that the book is a bit long and the print is a bit small, but it’s worth it.
The book is about a seventeen year old boy who has been bullied in school. Eventually, he snaps and goes on a rampage killing people on his high school.
The book also follows a judge, her daughter also a high school Sidney, a detective, and an attorney.
The ending is pretty shocking, and the book definitely makes you think. I’m really enjoying Picoult. Go to the bookstore.
Also, I’m debating whether to start reading Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult or Lucky One by Nicolas Sparks…
