By Jodi Picoult

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

The new novel from Number One bestselling author Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.

'The best books make you see differently. This is one of them. The eye-opening new novel from Jodi Picoult with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.'
'To Kill a Mockingbird for the 21st Century' Reader Review

When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father.

What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.

It is about opening your eyes.
