Set in a small town in the wake of a horrific school shooting, Nineteen Minutes sees the return of two favourite Picoult characters – Jordan McAfee, the lawyer from The Pact and Salem Falls, who once again finds himself representing a boy who desperately needs someone on his side; and Patrick Ducharme, the intrepid detective introduced in Perfect Match, whose best witness is the daughter of the superior judge assigned to the case. As the story unfolds, layer after layer is peeled back to reveal some hard-hitting questions about the nature of justice, and the balance of power and what it means to be different.
The bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and The Tenth Circle, Picoult reeturns with her most absorbing novel yet. Nineteen Minutes is a riveting thought-provoking tale with a jaw-dropping finale.

My two beliefs when it comes to helping The Cancer Council are:
To all the families who Cancer has and is affecting,my thoughts and prayers are with you.
