I really enjoyed this story. It was easy to read and shared all the main characters from a first person perspective, making it clear where they were coming from and why they behaved the way they did. Not that it made them all likable, because some were just so hateful and deplorable. Picoult was brave to tackle the divisive topic of racism head on. With one daughter in nursing school and another considering law school, I’ve recommended they both read this book. This novel shows we all could benefit by practicing more acceptance and love. What a wonderful takeaway!
