Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

This novels follows a nurse who is accused of allowing a newborn baby to die, the baby’s racists parents and the lawyer defending the nurse. It follows the court case and moves back to the main characters upbringing and choices she has made in life. It follows her family including her mother and sister .
I have read a couple of other books by this author and cant say i have found them really enjoyable.
I liked the story line to this book but there always seems to be a character or 2 in her novels that i can not seem to like, even when i feel I’m meant too. They either seem too needy or selfish or in this instance as if written by someone who has read up on aspects of a character rather than trying to put herself in their shoes. The characters felt a little too stereotyped and less believable. There have been mentions of this book being a new To Kill A Mockingbird , but apart from there being a court case? No I don’t think so.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
