Best friends Alex Cormier, a judge and Lacy Houghton, a midwife, meet when their children Josie Cormier and Peter Houghton are young. Both children deal in different ways to try to fit in with the popular crowd that dominates school social life, while both mothers are more or less oblivious to their children’s emotional struggles.
Picoult’s craft is top-notch. She spins a compelling story, including meticulous legal procedures, clearly draws her characters, brings them to life using individualized details. While it’s a captivating read, don’t expect to find any new and original insights into the social lives of children or parenting.

I remember sitting down to read this book on my break, and the next thing I know, I'm 15 minutes past my time. This book grabs you from the beginning because of the sheer violence from the first page. You have to know what happens. A little further in, it slows down, but you are already invested, and have to see through to the conclusion. Oh, and the conclusion? That's a doozy. Just like the other ones that I've read, she saves that really hard twist for the very last chapter, where are left gasping. ( )

My first foray into older Picoult! Jeesh though nothing has changed since '08. The first few chapters were almost too intense. ( )

“A mathematical formula for happiness:Reality divided by Expectations.There were two ways to be happy:improve your reality or lower your expectations.”
― Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes

Most people know that 19 minutes Is about both a school shooting as well as the aftermath of how the small town Copes after the shooting.

I found this to be an extraordinarily well written book and I salute the writer for being bold enough to go into the mind of the shooter which really shocked me at the time I read it as I don’t recall ever reading anything like that by any of the writer ever.

I cannot say I loved this book although I sure did love aspects of it. I felt the twists really took away from some of the book's power. This book did not need any of twists I felt.

SPOILERS:

The ending however sort of lost me as it got a little too twisty and the way things were wrapped up is just weird.

I can’t say this was a happy read but I feel a better person for reading it and and I look forward to checking out more of Jodi Picoult's books. ( )

In nineteen minutes, you can mow the front lawn, color your hair, watch a third of a hockey game. In nineteen minutes, you can bake scones or get a tooth filled by a dentist; you can fold laundry for a family of five. Nineteen minutes is how long it took the Tennessee Titans to sell out of tickets to the play-offs. It's the length of a sitcom, minus the commercials. It's the driving distance from the Vermont border to the town of Sterling New Hampshire. In nineteen minutes you can order a pizza and get it delivered. You can read a story to a child or have your oil changed. You can walk a mile. You can sew a hem. In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world or just jump off it. In nineteen minutes, you can get revenge.
