A Small Great Things
by Joki Picoult
“Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital. 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?” Grab this book, sit
back and enjoy this page turner.
