Nineteen Minutes post 1

Dear Jodi Picoult,

I am reading your novel Nineteen Minutes in English class for an outside reading assignment. I am not very far into it but so far I am very fascinated by what is happening. In the beginning there is some kind of note that is just starting to make sense. Throughout every paragraph in the chapters it is someone else being the narrator. I am kind of confused on how it goes from present day and all the characters are saying what they were doing on the shooting to sixteen years earlier. I feel bad for Josie, how she does not like her life and has hidden drugs. I could not imagine how she must feel everyday to even think of something like that for herself. I also do not understand why Patrick feels like he is always too late to help. So far in the book he has helped at the shooting and helped with a cocaine bust so why does he think he should help more? Although Alex tries to be a good mother and be there for Josie it seems like she should be more involved in her life. I am confused on how Lacy is involved in the story. I understand that she is helping Alex deliver Josie but I just do not understand why you went from talking about a shooting to having babies. I felt bad for Alex when she figured out that Logan was just using her for sex and she got pregnant and he is not willing to help. I really like how there is a lot of stories going on and am excited to see how they fit together. I can’t wait to keep reading!
