Overview
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
"Slate ""Cosmopolitan ""Salon BuzzFeed BookPage"
Written with the riveting storytelling of authors like Emma Donoghue, Adam Johnson, Ann Patchett, and Curtis Sittenfeld, "Cartwheel "is a suspenseful and haunting novel of an American foreign exchange student arrested for murder, and a father trying to hold his family together.
When Lily Hayes arrives in Buenos Aires for her semester abroad, she is enchanted by everything she encounters: the colorful buildings, the street food, the handsome, elusive man next door. Her studious roommate Katy is a bit of a bore, but Lily didn t come to Argentina to hang out with other Americans.
Five weeks later, Katy is found brutally murdered in their shared home, and Lily is the prime suspect. But who is Lily Hayes? It depends on who s asking. As the case takes shape revealing deceptions, secrets, and suspicious DNA Lily appears alternately sinister and guileless through the eyes of those around her: the media, her family, the man who loves her and the man who seeks her conviction. With mordant wit and keen emotional insight, "Cartwheel" offers a prismatic investigation of the ways we decide what to see and to believe in one another and ourselves.
In "Cartwheel, " duBois delivers a novel of propulsive psychological suspense and rare moral nuance. No two readers will agree who Lily is and what happened to her roommate. "Cartwheel" will keep you guessing until the final page, and its questions about how well we really know ourselves will linger well beyond.
