Her many readers will find much to discuss in the pages of this topical, moving book.”—<i>Booklist</i> (starred review)</b><br /><br /> Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’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?<br /><br /> 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 Kennedy’s counsel, Ruth tries to keep life as normal as possible for her family—especially her teenage son—as the case becomes a media sensation. As the trial moves forward, Ruth and Kennedy must gain each other’s trust, and come to see that what they’ve been taught their whole lives about others—and themselves—might be wrong.<br /><br /> With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. <i>Small Great Things</i> is a remarkable achievement from a writer at the top of her game.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Small Great Things</i></b><br /><br />“<i>Small Great Things</i> is the most important novel Jodi Picoult has ever written. . . .

Description :  In nineteen minutes, you can mow the front lawn, color your hair, watch a third of a hockey game. In nineteen minutes, you can bake scones or get a tooth filled by a dentist; you can fold laundry for a family of five....In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world, or you can just jump off it.

Told with the straightforward style for which she has become known, it asks simple questions that have no easy answers: Can your own child become a mystery to you?

9 Plain Truth

Author : Jodi Picoult
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2000-05-01
Description :  Jodi Picoult has touched readers deeply with her acclaimed novels, such as <i>Keeping Faith</i> and <i>The Pact.</i> Gifted with "a remarkable ability to make us share her characters' feelings" <i>(People),</i> Picoult now explores the complex choices of the heart for a young Amish woman -- the compelling journey of discovery for an urban lawyer who befriends and protects her. <br /> The small town of Paradise, Pennsylvania, is a jewel in Lancaster County -- known for its picture-postcard landscapes and bucolic lifestyle. But that peace is shattered by the discovery of a dead infant in the barn of an Amish farmer. A police investigation quickly leads to two startling disclosures: the newborn's mother is an unmarried Amish woman, eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher. And the infant did not die of natural causes. Although Katie denies the medical proof that she gave birth to the child, circumstantial evidence leads to her arrest for the murder of her baby. <br /> One hundred miles away, Philadelphia defense attorney Ellie Hathaway has achieved an enviable, high-profile career. But her latest court "victory" has set the sands shifting beneath her. Single at thirty-nine and unsatisfied with her relationship, Ellie doesn't look back when she turns down her chance to make partner and takes off for an open-ended stay at her great-aunt's home in Paradise. <br /> Fate brings her to Katie Fisher. Suddenly, Ellie sees the chance to defend a client who truly needs her, not just one who can afford her. But taking on this case challenges Ellie in more ways than one. She finds herself not only in a clash of wills with a client who does not want to be defended but also in a clash of cultures with a people whose channels of justice are markedly different from her own. <br /> Immersing herself in Katie Fisher's life -- and in a world founded on faith, humility, duty, and honesty -- Ellie begins to understand the pressures and sacrifices of those who to live "plain." As she peels away the layers of fact and fantasy, Ellie calls on an old friend for guidance. Now, just as this man from Ellie's past reenters her life, she must uncover the truth about a complex case, a tragic loss, the bonds of love -- and her own deepest fears and desires. <br /> Moving seamlessly from psychological drama to courtroom suspense, <i>Plain Truth</i> is a triumph of contemporary storytelling. Jodi Picoult presents a fascinating portrait of Amish life rarely witnessed by those outside the faith -- and discovers a place where circumstances are not always what they seem, where love meets falsehood, and where relationships grow strong enough to span two worlds.

Tall, blond, and handsome, Jack was once a beloved teacher and soccer coach at a girls' prep school -- until a student's crush sparked a powder keg of accusation and robbed him of his reputation. Now, working for minimum wage washing dishes for Addie Peabody at the Do-Or-Diner, Jack buries his past, content to become the mysterious stranger who has appeared out of the blue. <br /> With ghosts of her own haunting her, Addie Peabody is as cautious around men as Jack St. Bride is around women. But as this unassuming stranger steps smoothly into the diner's daily routine, she finds him fitting just as comfortably inside her heart -- and slowly, a gentle, healing love takes hold between them. <br /> Yet planting roots in Salem Falls may prove fateful for Jack. Amid the white-painted centuries-old churches, a quartet of bored, privileged teenage girls have formed a coven that is crossing the line between amusement and malicious intent. Quick to notice the attractive new employee at Addie's diner, the girls turn Jack's world upside down with a shattering allegation that causes history to repeat itself -- and forces Jack to proclaim his innocence once again. Suddenly nothing in Salem Falls is as it seems: a safe haven turns dangerous, an innocent girl meets evil face-to-face, a dishwasher with a Ph.D. is revealed to be an ex-con. As Jack's hidden past catches up with him, the seams of this tiny town begin to tear, and the emerging truth becomes a slippery concept written in shades of gray.

But whereas most parents lie awake at night vividly conjuring the worst scenarios that could befall their children in their absence, Nina lives the reality of such crises -- and it's her job to do something about them. Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters -- and in the course of her everyday work, she has endured the frustration of seeing too many criminals slip through the system and walk free. <br /> A man as methodical and careful as his wife is instinctive and mercurial, Caleb Frost is a stonemason who glories in his ability to construct with his own hands the physical barriers that will keep out the unwanted -- and protect all that is precious within. But even the strongest walls cannot guard Nina and Caleb from the shattering discovery that their own beloved son has been sexually abused. <br /> Five-year-old Nathaniel is the only one who knows the identity of his assailant -- but in the initial fallout of his trauma, he's been left mute, unable to speak a single word.

Is what we believe always the truth? <br /><br /> One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen. <br /><br /> For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens that changes everything for him. Now, he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's eleven-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes, and the rage of a mother who has lost her child. <br /><br /> Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy's dying wish? <br /><br /> Once again, Jodi Picoult mesmerizes and enthralls readers with this story of redemption, justice, and love.

22 The Tenth Circle

Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2006-03-07
Description :  <b>Jodi Picoult,</b> the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Vanishing Acts,</i> offers her most powerful chronicle yet of an American family with a story that probes the unbreakable bond between parent and child -- and the dangerous repercussions of trying to play the hero. <br /><br /> Trixie Stone is fourteen years old and in love for the first time. She's also the light of her father's life -- a straight-A student; a freshman in high school who is pretty and popular; a girl who's always looked up to Daniel Stone as a hero. Until, that is, her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence...and suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family -- and herself -- seems to be a lie. <br /><br /> For fifteen years, Daniel Stone has been an even-tempered, mild-mannered man: a stay-at-home dad to Trixie and a husband who has put his own career as a comic book artist behind that of his wife, Laura, who teaches Dante's <i>Inferno</i> at a local college. But years ago, he was completely different: growing up as the only white boy in an Eskimo village, he was teased mercilessly for the color of his skin. He learned to fight back: stealing, drinking, robbing, and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself, channeling his rage onto the page and burying his past completely...until now. Could the young boy who once made Trixie's face fill with light when he came to the door have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a man with a history he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back in order to protect his daughter. <br /><br /> <i>The Tenth Circle</i> looks at that delicate moment when a child learns that her parents don't know all of the answers and when being a good parent means letting go of your child. It asks whether you can reinvent yourself in the course of a lifetime or if your mistakes are carried forever -- if life is, as in any good comic book, a struggle to control good and evil, or if good and evil control you.

24 Second Glance

Author : Jodi Picoult
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books  Literary 
Price :  $12.99
Release Date :  2003-04-08
Description :  <i>"Sometimes I wonder....Can a ghost find you, if she wants to?"</i> <br /> An intricate tale of love, haunting memories, and renewal, Second Glance begins in current-day Vermont, where an old man puts a piece of land up for sale and unintentionally raises protest from the local Abenaki Indian tribe, who insist it's a burial ground. When odd, supernatural events plague the town of Comtosook, a ghost hunter is hired by the developer to help convince the residents that there's nothing spiritual about the property. <br /> Enter Ross Wakeman, a suicidal drifter who has put himself in mortal danger time and again. He's driven his car off a bridge into a lake. He's been mugged in New York City and struck by lightning in a calm country field. Yet despite his best efforts, life clings to him and pulls him ever deeper into the empty existence he cannot bear since his fiancée's death in a car crash eight years ago. Ross now lives only for the moment he might once again encounter the woman he loves. But in Comtosook, the only discovery Ross can lay claim to is that of Lia Beaumont, a skittish, mysterious woman who, like Ross, is on a search for something beyond the boundary separating life and death. Thus begins Jodi Picoult's enthralling and ultimately astonishing story of love, fate, and a crime of passion. <br /> Hailed by critics as a "master" storyteller (Washington Post), Picoult once again "pushes herself, and consequently the reader, to think about the unthinkable" <i>(Denver Post). Second Glance,</i> her eeriest and most engrossing work yet, delves into a virtually unknown chapter of American history -- Vermont's eugenics project of the 1920s and 30s -- to provide a compelling study of the things that come back to haunt us -- literally and figuratively. Do we love across time, or in spite of it?

Description :  Más allá del cociente intelectual de un genio, de su memoria fotográfica, sus citas cinematográficas o sus increíbles conocimientos sobre criminalística, lo que los demás ven en Jacob Hunt es su asperger. Un síndrome que le impide interpretar de manera correcta las situaciones sociales. Su madre Emma, una mujer divorciada, ha construido la vida de su familia alrededor de las necesidades de su hijo mayor, aun a costa de su car­rera y casi ignorando a su otro hijo Theo. Pero cuando la pequeña ciudad donde viven se ve sacudida por un terrible asesinato y la policía acude a interrogar a Jacob como sospechoso, todos esos comportamientos característicos del asperger —no mirar a los ojos, los tics nerviosos, la carencia de emotividad— se vuelven en su contra como una confesión de culpabilidad, y esa vida cuidadosamente labrada por Emma, y que tanto esfuerzo le ha costado, se viene abajo.<br /><br /><i>Las normas de la casa</i>, bestseller número 1 del <i>New York Times</i>, orquestada por una de las autoras más leídas en el mundo, dibuja una novela negra con argumento judi­cial, humor y una desbordante profundidad psicológica. Jacob es culpable de decir cosas inapropiadas, es culpable de sacar de sus casillas a su hermano Theo; es culpable de todas aquellas cosas extrañas para la gente que no comprende lo que es vivir con el síndrome de asperger.

45 La custode di mia sorella

Author : Jodi Picoult
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $7.99
Release Date :  2012-06-21
Description :  Anna non è malata ma è come se lo fosse. A tredici anni è già stata sottoposta a numerosi interventi chirurgici, trasfusioni e iniezioni in modo che la sorella maggiore Kate possa combattere la leucemia che l'ha colpita in tenera età. Anna è stata concepita con le caratteristiche genetiche che la rendono idonea a essere donatore di midollo per la sorella, ruolo che non ha mai messo discussione ma che ora le diventa, di colpo, insostenibile. Perché nessuno le chiede mai il suo parere? Perché si dà per scontato che lei sia disponibile? Anna prende una decisione per molti impensabile e che sconvolgerà la vita di tutti i suoi cari: fa causa alla sua famiglia. Jodi Picoult ha scritto un romanzo intenso su un tema difficile e doloroso. L'autrice dà voce a tutti i protagonisti della vicenda, permettendo al lettore di capire fino in fondo la complessità delle relazioni familiari. Se tutti hanno ragione, come mai non riescono a mettersi d'accordo? Ma soprattutto, com'è possibile che siano tutti così infelici? La custode di mia sorella con delicatezza e saggezza ci fa domandare che cosa significhi essere dei bravi genitori, dei bravi fratelli, delle brave persone; se sia moralmente corretto salvare la vita di un bambino allorché ciò significa violare i diritti di un altro; se bisogna seguire il proprio cuore, o lasciare che siano gli altri a condurci; se sia sbagliato cercare di scoprire chi si è veramente se questo significa rischiare di perdersi.
