First Line Friday #15

Today’s First Line Friday deals with an issue every parent fears: something happening to their child in a violent way.  This books leads  is the aftermath that leads up to the Nineteen Minutes where the event occurs.

By the time you read this, I hope to be dead.

Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and The Tenth Circle, pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy.

Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens–until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state’s best witness, but she can’t remember what happened before her very own eyes–or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show–destroying the closest of friendships and families.

Nineteen Minutes asks what it means to be different in our society, who has the right to judge someone else, and whether anyone is ever really who they seem to be.

      I actually got that in the mail today from Book Depository!! I’m not sure when I will read it.

      Book Depository is great as the covers are usually UK covers (which I tend to prefer) and it cam be cheaper than Amazon! Granted you have to wait sometimes on the books, but that is fine.
