Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

Allen & Unwin, Crows Nest 2007

Nineteen minutes is one of those books that I both love and hate. And one I found hard to put down, even when I had finished it

As a mother, I donít want to know about school shootings or imagine it happening in my childís school. As a mother, I donít want to contemplate my child doing something horrible to others.

As a reader, this book is thoughtful, well constructed and very real. Picoult gives us so many points of view without passing judgement, leaving it to us to draw our own conclusions and thoughts.

As an imaginative person, I was surprised at the twists in the story Ė even with all the clues laid out, the twists still surprised me every time.

It isnít a quick read as there are many characters and a lot to think about, but it is a great book and is also thought provoking about the role of parents in their childís behaviour. But perhaps best read during the school holidaysÖ
