Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy. 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 really who they seem to be.

Ta opinia będzie nieco się różnić od innych jakie napisałam. Głównie za sprawą wychowania i akceptacji. Bo właśnie "wychowanie" i "akceptacja" - to słowa-klucze, które w tej książce są główną przyczyną zachowań, postaw i działań bohaterów. Dlaczego tak sądzę? W książce spotykamy charaktery wielu osó...

Picoult nigdy nie zawodzi. Kolejna wspaniała książka ukazująca problem z wielu perspektyw. Wciąga niesamowicie i pomimo 700 stron czyta się ją wyjątkowo szybko. Podoba mi się, że autorka tak drastycznie poruszyła temat przemocy i jej konsekwencji. Wydaje mi się, że zadaje to większy cios w serce i r...

Read in 2011 What it's like to be different - and to watch the one person you thought understood what made you tick walk away for all the wrong reasons. Sometimes you don't get a do-over. Sometimes you wish you could take it all back. Sometimes you just have to learn to live with the consequences...
