In Sex Outside the Lines, Dr. Chris Donaghue describes the holes in society's definition of "normal", taking a sharp eye to institutions such as marriage, cheating, virginity, identity, and sexual orientation. He also examines all the ways that accepting society's "truths" have led to the demise of long-term relationships and sexual pleasure. All of this misinformation is showing up in your bedroom and preventing you from having the sex life you're entitled to.

Sometimes the language was difficult to follow, had to rewind often, but the general concepts came across, so progressive, so enlightened! Acknowledges and breaks down all social norms that we except as rules and suggests modern and approachable alternatives for sex and relationships. 🙌🙌

Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than 20 years' experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders, or does she intervene?

So gripping and engaging!! Not surprised.. have come to expect this from picoult. I would actually react to some of the language while listening in my car it was so raw and real! Such a refreshing and uncommon point of view on race today. Thought provoking and beautiful. Would highly recommend, deserves all the stars I can give!!
