Docket Page 5 – A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult

CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): To inspire you to start difficult conversations and create more understanding about the choices we make.

FACTS: With abortion so much in the news, it was interesting to read a novel about abortion in Mississippi. The reverse chronology was annoying, as were the author’s convictions, which she shared freely.

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Not guilty. It seems like the only conversation the author would entertain was one that agreed with her position.
