Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper & The Tenth Circle, pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling & 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 & the adult community begin to show - destroying the closest of friendships & families. Nineteen Minutes asks what it means to be different in our society, who has the right to judge someone else, & whether anyone is ever really who they seem to be."

"A brilliantly told tale, one that dares to remind us that someone loved the killer too."
- People (Critic’s Choice, ****)

"The author’s insights into her characters’ deep-seated emotions brings this ripped-from-the-headlines read chillingly alive."
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
