Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: The mystery surrounding this story had me hooked. I really needed to understand what happened! Jodi Picoult’s writing is always so gripping and full of questions you just need to have answered and this one did not disappoint.


How I Felt: Shattered. Utterly shattered. This book surrounds a school shooting, which is just a terrifying story line. I was devastated for the families, but sucked into the aftermath’s story.


To Read or Not To Read: With the caveat that this has trigger warnings with school shootings, gun violence, and teen death, this was a great book. Jodi Picoult fans will not be disappointed. If you haven’t read Jodi Picoult, this one does not stray from what readers love so much about her. It is a great book, and I highly recommend it.


What’s This Book About Anyway?

A school shooting has taken place in a small New Hampshire town. This book follows the aftermath of that shooting, including the trial for the shooter. There is an eye-witness that cannot remember what she saw, and she happens to be the judge’s daughter. There are a lot of mysteries to be solved throughout the story, keeping you turning the pages long into the night!
