"Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens- until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened before her very own eyes- or can she? 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 asks what it means to be different in our society, who has the right to judge someone else, and whether anyone is ever who they seem to be."
I loved this book. I was surprised by the ending like I usually am with all of Jodi Picoult's books.
Nineteen Minutes shows what can happen to a small town that is destroyed by an act of violence and in this book it's a high school shooting. Josie Cormier's boyfriend is killed right before her eyes so she should be able to testify and say if her old best friend shot him but she can't remember what happened.. <33>
