's review

it was amazing

Intriguing prequel

Shine is a short story, the prequel to Small Great Things. It tells the story of Ruth, a young black girl who is awarded a scholarship to attend a prestigious school in 1979. Ruth is bright and determined to succeed, but quickly realizes that the other students will not accept her, or treat her fairly. This story was a perfect way to increase my interest in reading the full-length novel!

Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader I'm hoping to read this one soon, too, Susan! So excited for new Picoult!

Susan Peterson It's less than 50 pages long, but I'm sure sets up the book nicely!

Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader Yes, I love these prequel books; it's like a bonus for one we are so excited about!
