Nineteen Minutes

by Jodi Picoult

Hey everybody!

 This book Nineteen Minutes is a terrific book if you like mysteries. The story takes place when a shooter comes to the local school and kills 10 people and injures countless others. The daughter of the judge on the case should be the best witness there is (because she was there when it happened), but she can't remember anything... At the beginning of the book, the conflict starts. The rest of the book switches from the events leading up to the conflict, and the solving of the conflict.  Nineteen Minutes is VERY suspenseful. You won't want to put it down once you start reading it.

 I advise that you be at least 12 to read this book. There is violence and bad language. It is 6th grade reading level, but I don't believe that.

 Also, there are many characters and many different elements in time, so it can get kind of confusing, but it'll be ok.

 Read it,

and enjoy. 


P.S. My summary seems REALLY sad compared to how good the book actually is.

As much as I love the book Nineteen Minutes, I believe that it is highly innappropriate. I believe that you should be at least 14 because of bad language, violence, sex.
