"When Lily Hayes arrives in Buenos Aires for her semester abroad, she is enchanted by everything she encounters-- the colorful surroundings, the street food, the elusive guy 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. With mordant wit and keen emotional insight, Cartwheel offers a prismatic investigation of the ways we decide what to see-- and to believe-- in each other and ourselves"-- Provided by publisher.

When I heard Random House was publishing a novel loosely inspired by the Amanda Knox murder trial, I was cautiously intrigued. Would it 1) feed into the mob-and-pitchfork media frenzy, or 2) try to flesh out all the contextual holes that get lost in 15 second media clips? I was psyched that it was door #2, which should be no surprise coming from Jennifer duBois. DuBois is a perceptive and artful storyteller, and Cartwheel switches between several different perspectives to zoom in on all the contours of a mysterious crime that became a cultural obsession. I love the light she shines darkly on the flawed assumptions that seduce us and the ways truth can be so unknowable. Emily Rankin (who's also recorded The Age of Miracles and others as Emily Janice Card) narrates the audio, and her eerily innocent voice is a great fit for this story about two young women setting out to discover a bigger, darker world.
