Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Picoult manages to keep pushing these good books out! This novel is all about race--in short, a black nurse is charged with murdering a white supremacist's baby in the maternity ward. Add in a white do-gooder public defender and all sorts of conversations about white privilege, microaggressions, class and gender issues, and you've got a novel that will hold your attention and make you think!
I'll admit that I didn't like the way the ending wrapped up, but it's still worth the read if you like these kinds of contemporary family/social drama fiction books.
