REVIEW õ Cartwheel Written with the riveting storytelling and moral seriousness 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 Ar. it s so rare that i review a book that is actually out what with all my netgalleying and ARC hoarding but this one has been out for ages and i am only just now getting around to the ARC i hoarded last year but this means i can say to you go and get this now you don t have to wait 4 months for me to float my review and remind you that you wanted to read it because i loved it and i feel like it has been so long since i truly loved a book that i want to crow and dance and maybe do a cartwheelthis book is inspired by the amanda knox case and if that is a case you paid attention to maybe this book won t be for you what it was for me i only glanced at headlines as they shouted in my face so all i know is that she may or may not have killed her roommate when she was studying abroad in italy periodthis book is about a 21 year old girl named lily who goes to buenos aires for a semester abroad and becomes the prime suspect when her roommate katy is brutally murdered in the room they shared the story shifts between the perspectives of lily her father the prosecutor convinced of her guilt and lily s boyfriend sebastien lecompte both before and after the murder it is an exuisite puzzle of fact and speculation misunderstandings and lies posturing and psychological manipulation artifice and reality and i was completely riveted throughoutthe best thing about this book is lily good lord what a wonderfully written and insufferable character lily is that kind of super confident and careless entitled american girl smart enough to bluster her way through pseudo intellectual discussions and debates but also so self involved as to be horribly naive about how she is perceived and how her actions affect other people she goes through life patting herself on the back for being progressive and tolerant in her beliefs in love with the world and completely unaware of when she is being off putting or offensive she has that college student mentality that is figuring it all out not just for herself but for everybody else she is discovering things that no one has ever before discovered and her thoughts are wildly original and she scoffs at the pedestrian and the banal young enough to not know that this attitude is itself banal it is perfect in all of those uncomfortably familiar details and her father s embarrassedindulgent assessment of her is also staggeringly perfect all the minor details in this all the uiet moments of contemplation and what did we do wrong as insalubrious aspects of her character come out in the media coverage and the character assassination begins the words and actions of a selfish girl generally innocuous under ordinary circumstances look much incriminating after a crimeshe really has handled lily very well although we see how wounded she feels when she is misunderstood how she is well intentioned but clumsy how her actions are freuently attempts to be unobtrusive she comes across to others as indifferent irreverent selfish she protects herself with the armor of studied insouciance and she really feels like she is being some kind of social revolutionary with her laissez faire attitude and the excitement of her shiny new independence and her appreciation of the grotesuebut all of this causes problems for her her arrogance about her facility with the language leads her to confidently submit to an interrogation in spanish and once she is detained she is so stunned that the world is not treating her with the same indulgent acceptance to which she has become accustomed she just shuts down and submitsand sebastien ugh what a sympathetic but maddening character a bazillionaire orphan living next door to the girls in a huge crumbling house filled with sheet covered furniture hiding hurt behind persona behind exhausting irony behind lies and what he sees as a kind of elitist charm not as smart as he thinks he is but he manages to land lily even though she sees right through him and her father almost every observation he makes about lily is heartbreaking and real and made me want to call my dad and apologize for how insufferable i must have been during my teenageearly twenties years as the story goes on and you begin to see the cracks on both sides you will come to your own conclusions like any situation in which you were not yourself present you re never going to know what really happened even when you are being led by a novelist of such powerful gifts unreliable narrators self preservation misunderstandings everything adds up to a giant uestion mark but it s a wonderful journey to that uestion mark and although there are so many

REVIEW õ Cartwheel Gentina 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.

REVIEW õ Cartwheel And to believe in one another and ourselves   Jennifer duBois’s debut novel A Partial History of Lost Causes was a finalist for the PENHemingway Award for Debut Fiction and was honored by the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 program In Cartwheel duBois delivers a novel of propulsive psychological suspense and rare moral nuance Who is Lily Hayes What happened to her roommate No two readers will agree Cartwheel will keep you guessing until the final page and its uestions about how much we really know about ourselves will linger well beyond. Cartwheel is very loosely based on the framework of facts from the Amanda Knox case but that doesn t mean it s a crime thriller or murder mystery It starts off as a deep dive into the psyches of a few important characters Lily Hayes the Knox alter ego Lily s father Andrew the prosecutor Eduardo and Lily s sometime boyfriend Sebastien I assumed Cartwheel would provide no definite answers I was wrong about that I think and that any conclusions the reader could draw would be based on knowing these characters very very well so I welcomed this opportunity It was fascinating for while and then seemed less so all this character development meant the story moved at a snail s pace Plus the two characters I found most fascinating Katy and Anna never had a chance to speak for themselves and Eduardo was just unrealistic he belonged in a different novel from the one everyone else was in The I ponder the book though the I realize that just about every character was intriguing in hisher own way including minor characters like Beatriz and the creepy Ignacio That s a difficult thing for a writer to pull off I also cannot deny that as the book neared its end the feelings of dread and powerlessness it engendered were almost unbearable I m sure this was Jennifer duBois s intent and that element of the book was wholly successfulI ve now read both of Jennifer duBois s novels and my overall feeling is that her writing is extremely impressive but hard to love I admired both A Partial History of Lost Causes and Cartwheel but cannot honestly say I enjoyed them Maybe I m not really meant to duBois chooses difficult heavy subjects and perhaps the best compliment I can pay is that she definitely does them justice Buried Mountain Secrets keep you guessing until the final page and its uestions about how much we really Buried Mountain Secrets know about ourselves will linger well beyond.
