In My Mailbox (11)

IMy Mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie. It is a list of all the books that I've have received over the previous week, whether I won them, bought them, or borrowed them.

I won one book this week from Kari (Flamingo1325) at 
A Good Addiction. Thank you so much Kari! You rock :)

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
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 comp
lacency 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.
