"Waiting On" Wednesday: Small Great Things


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:



Small Great Things
By Jodi Picoult

Publication Date: October 11

From Amazon:

Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than 20 years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been 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?
With incredible empathy, intelligence, and candor, Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

  15. Jodi Picoult and I either really get along plot-wise or really hate each other plot-wise. This one sounds good though. My pick for this week's WOW tends to make people have very combative feelings too.

  18. this sounds intriguing, but I always seem to end up disappointed by JP books because a definitive resolution always seems just out of reach (but maybe that's just me) :)
