I recently finished Jodi Picoult's 14th novel, Nineteen Minutes for my book club. It was the first book I read by Jodi. This book begins with a high school shooting and then goes back in time to describe the lives of the kids involved. It was shocking at times and sad all around. But it really opened my eyes to see the heart of the shooter, described by his mom to be a sweet sensative kid, who had been bullied every day since kindergarden. I felt so bad for this kid and also his mother who wondered what she did wrong. Although this book touches a grim topic i give it two thumbs up and will probably read it again!
