This is one of my favorite books by Jodi picoult but most of her books are all worth reading.
One of my favorite Jodi Picoult books. I think almost everyone can identify with the book in some way. In this emotionally charged novel, Jodi Picoult delves beneath the surface of a small town to explore what it means to be different in our society. In Sterling, New Hampshire, 17-year-old high school student Peter Houghton has endured years of verbal and physical abuse at the hands of classmates. His best friend, Josie Cormier, succumbed to peer pressure and now hangs out with the popular crowd that often instigates the harassment. One final incident of bullying sends Peter over the edge and leads him to commit an act of violence that forever changes the lives of Sterling’s residents. Even those who were not inside the school that morning find their lives in an upheaval, including Alex Cormier. The superior court judge assigned to the Houghton case, Alex—whose daughter, Josie, witnessed the events that unfolded—must decide whether or not to step down. She’s torn between presiding over the biggest case of her career and knowing that doing so will cause an even wider chasm in her relationship with her emotionally fragile daughter. Josie, meanwhile, claims she can’t remember what happened in the last fatal minutes of Peter’s rampage. Or can she? And Peter’s parents, Lacy and Lewis Houghton, ceaselessly examine the past to see what they might have said or done to compel their son to such extremes. Rich with psychological and social insight, Nineteen Minutes is a riveting, poignant, and thought-provoking novel that has at its center a haunting question. Do we ever really know someone?
Nineteen Minutes was an amazing story. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. Definitely a book worth reading more than once!
Jodie Picoult-Nineteen Minutes This was a Seekonk Massachusetts town read on the high school reading list a few years ago. excellent
best Jodi Picoult book in my opinion. About a high school shooting, and the whole book takes place in 19 minutes.

Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin (sequel to Something Blue)
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin is my favorite book ever! I have literally read it 20 times!
Something borrowed by Emily GIFFIN. Chick lit: Very good book (Not the same thing about the movie... )
Emily Giffin's is the perfect summer read for anyone that feels that they are stuck in an impossible position. As much as I found myself feeling bad for Rachel, I really felt drawn to the young and care-free ways of Darcy. The novel was relatable to an extent and did feel over-done/unrealistic. Cute read for lounging around and just wanting to be entertained
One of my favorite book series.

Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone’s Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it’s the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It’s about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you---and knows what has the power to hurt you…and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you’ll never forget…one you’ll want to pass on to your best friend.
