Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things is about racism, choice, fear and hope. The novel is based on the true story of a labor and delivery nurse who was prohibited from caring for a newborn because the father requested that no African-American nurses tend to his baby. In the fictional version, Ruth, the African-American nurse in question, finds herself on trial for events related to the same request made by a white supremacist father. Using the naratives of Ruth, the baby's father, and the female public defender who takes Ruth's case, Picoult examines multiple facets of racism. The topic of race in America is difficult to talk about but in an honest and revealing way Picoult allows readers to draw their own conclusions about how we see ourselves and others n the world. Small Great Things is an important and thought-provoking novel about power and prjudice that deserves to be read, digested and shared with others. --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review.
