Flyers with the message “White Lives Matter” have turned up at more homes in Suffolk County. Residents in Calverton by Pinehurst Boulevard and Highview Drive found the flyers folded up inside of plastic bags and weighed down with pebbles.
I’m almost embarrassed to say this was my first ever Jodi Picoult book. After finishing it, I immediately added many of her titles to my Goodreads “Want to Read” bookshelf.
Ruth is a labor and delivery nurse with more than twenty years of experience. She begins caring for a newborn, a newborn whose parents are white supremacists. In addition to being a highly-qualified, professional and skilled L&D nurse, Ruth is also African American.
Small Great Things is written from three different points of view: a nurse, a white supremacist and a public defender.
Of course, the story is timely, it always will be… and it opened my eyes to a world I often forget exists: the world of white supremacy. I highly recommend this book to pretty much anyone. Jodi Picoult leaves questions for the reader to try and answer. This is one of the most important novels I’ve ever read.

In June 2017, I fell in love with a land called Puerto Rico. From long days at the beach, to long nights in Old San Juan, to driving a rented Jeep Wrangler with the top down through the rainforest, this trip is one I’ll never forget…
You know how sometimes you go somewhere and you don’t realize until after that it was somewhere you’ve always wanted to go? That perfectly describes my trip to the Montauk Lighthouse. The view from the top is completely breathtaking, while the beachfront is serene and opened my eyes to the world of rock balancing.
