Los Angeles Times Intricately textured and rich with psychological and social insight, Jodi Picoult's novels grab readers by the throat from page one and never let go. As emotionally charged as any she has written, Nineteen Minutes may be her most powerful work to date. Set in a small town in the wake of a horrific school shooting, Nineteen Minutes features the return of two beloved 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 court 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, the balance of power and what it means to be different.

This is a really good book. It is very well written but hard to get out of your head.The cover looks like it would be a love story, and in some ways it is.I do not want to give it away you just have to read it.
THIS BOOK WAS ONE THAT REALLY MADE ME THINK ABOUT THE YOUTH OF OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS STORY HAS BEEN DONE NUMEROUS TIMES BUT ESTRANGED YOUNG ADULTS. ONCE AGAIN IT REALLY MAKES YOU THINK AND WITH EVER TWIST AND TURN MAKES YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE TRUTH AND KEEP READING.
Jodi really dives into those teen tragedy plots, doesn't she? All of her books are about topics, that honestly - they bring me down... way down. I almost always need a thoughtless, beach read next to bring myself back up!
This book is good... its a fairly quick read. Unfortunately, this is the inside story of the tragedy we read in the papers almost daily now. I suppose its interesting to gain perspective on the lunatic, killer to learn why he became that way.. and how his pychosis could have been avoided. It's also interesting to see the survivor's perspective... especially the survivor of the once-friend of the killer.
Still a downer - but a good story.
Another intense, gripping book by Jodi. If you have not read her, be prepared to be, at the same time, saddened by the state of the adolescent world and intrigued by Jodi's ability to put you right there.

This book had such poor editing problems which so ticks me off. Plus, for such a sensitive subject matter, all the editing issues and the non sufficient timeline make such a mess, who was editing here? Why was this author so quick to rush through writing this book? The time was not taking to get the years and ages of past and present correctly in tact. Also piecing the references together, And..... Starting with the current time of the book only to have it not coincide with the time frame it should've been in. The reader is left with massive gaps and given pieces of a puzzle only to have them later totally ignored (MISSING). That is the problem with these sellout contracts, the quotas are so asinine, that the writer may be prolific, yet lacks that integral "substance" that make their writing great.
And... Hello! I guess anyone can skip law school and rush in to the states attorneys office to be a public defender WOW!
I am an avid reader, I am quick on detail I absorb it, and I was very disappointed in the sloppy, rushed and massively GAPPED nature in which this book was written.
Such a shame for a book that had such potential.
