Nineteen Minutes

Nineteen Minutes Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book, even though it disturbed me deeply, especially as the mother of two boys and a teacher. I know how important it is to identify bullying behavior and put an end to it early. It's so damaging to a young person's psyche. I was bullied quite a bit by girls I went to middle school with and I know how deeply it can damage your self image. It took me years to get over the painful things that were said and done to me. I'm one of the lucky ones. How many kids end up committing suicide or killing others?

Yes... I do something other than cut up paper, run with scissors, and sniff glue! I'm loving the Goodreads website. Have you been there?
