Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult 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 teenage 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.

    "thought provoking"

    Worth your time to listen to this story. I nearly rejected the book early on as it was a bit slow and confusing initially setting the scene and introducing the characters. However, once set it had a thought provoking storyline.

    "Gripping story!"

    Realistically makes you think how our world is steadily changing! As always with this author there is always a small but well thought out twist at the end. Gripping read. My only negatives is the chapters are VERY long

    Story
    "thought provoking, intelligently written twisted"

    The Americanisms annoyed me at first especially the overuse of the word "sucked" however this and the. narrator's American accent faded due to her compelling storytelling and twisted plot lines. An excellent read definitely reading more Jodi Picoult. Ace

    Nineteen Minutes - Although subject matter not nice, good storytelling
    Jodi does write book that give you an all perspective of the characters in the book.
    Narration was OK sometimes I felt there could have been a bit more passion in her voice

    "Amazing"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite book of hers so far. The way the story was written in unbelievable. I love how she wrote in all the views of the people involved in the school shooting. I was so amazed by the twist that came later on towards the end. This is defiantly a good book for all families to read, as it covers a lot of important topics.

    "Juvenile perspective"

    I like Jodi Picoult's writing, but this book seemed like a "young reader's" story of high school cruelties and first love. I thought some of the characters were one dimensional and found myself thinking "yea, yea, I get it." Will try more of her books, but didn't care for this one and did not finish.

    "Could be better narrated"

    the story line got me hooked from the very start. i love how the book starts by building this character of a boy that ends up the way e did. However, my favorite part was the trail!
    the only thing i didnt enjoy was the narration. it was kind monotonic and i found myself a bit bored with her sometimes. I wish it was more interactive with the intensity of the story.
    overall, i would recommend it

    "Great book!"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It was the kind of book you think about when you're not even reading it. Good narrator as well. The only thing is that I think the ending dropped off quickly without explanation. It's a great murder story that isn't necessarily a mystery!
