Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult

Ruth Jefferson is a labor nurse with more than 20 years’ experience. During a routine checkup on a newborn she is suddenly reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?

Picoult offers a thought-provoking examination of racism in America today.
