My road to finding and becoming interested in CARTWHEEL was longIn 2008 I read a book called The Monster of Florence about Il Mostro a serial killer linked to 16 murders which took place in Florence Italy between 1968 and 1985and also watched numerous documentaries about the killings Douglas Preston was one of the authors of The Monster of Florence and was also in the forefront of my favorite documentaries on the case I found him very credible and also knew he wrote The Relic which I loved as a movieI was flipping around the channels on my TV and saw him being interviewed for something unrelated which turned out to be the Amanda Knox case I was curious to why he would be involved so I left the program on and was instantly hooked As it turns out the prosecutor in the Amanda Knox case is the same man who made Preston s life and many others such a nightmare That man is Giuliano Mignini who I think is the epitome of evil He is a man who sees satanic conspiracies everywhere he looks crazy people have no place in positions of power and he is a whole lot of crazyI normally stay away from watching highly publicized trials like Knox s but because of my prior knowledge it kind of sucked me in When I read a few articles on Cartwheel a book loosely based on her case I knew I would have to read it Setting and time period Buenos Aires January February March and May Character POVs Lily a pretty bright somewhat odd and naive young girl who s studying abroad when her roommate Katy dies under mysterious circumstances Andrew Father of three girls Janie who died very young Lily Andrew s favorite and Anna the invisible child Andrew is a professor of international relations and is divorced from the children s mother Maureen although they are still friends Sebastien Lily s boyfriend Sebastien is a wealthy reclusive young man who lost his parents in a plane crash He lives next door to the Carrizos Lily and Katy s landlords Eduardo The man in charge of solving Katy s murder Eduardo takes an instant dislike to Lily and her American ways he also sees similarities between Lily and his flighty on again off again wife Maria which doesn t do Lily any favorsPlot CARTWHEEL is told from four different POV and flips back and forth the majority of the timefrom three different time periods January February and MarchThe story opens when Andrew Hayes arrives in Argentina to help his daughter Lily who was studying abroad but has now been arrested for the murder of her roommate Katy something Andrew is sure she didn t do Andrew and his ex wife Maureen lost their first daughter to a rare disease when she was a toddlerthey can t bare to lose another oneFor those who watched the Amanda Knox trial this will be something I am sure that you will want to read For those who didn t there are enough differences from the true life story to keep you wanting to know what happens to Lily in the end Advanced Readers Copy

Sure Cartwheel will be compared to the true events in the life and trial of Amanda Knox Jennifer DuBois stated that Cartwheel is inspired by that true crime After finishing Cartwheel I decided to familiaize myself with that news story since I d never really followed it or watched the movies based on Amanda Knox I wasn t constantly comparing the book to the real events which is definitely a plus Because I was seeing this with fresh eyes so to speak I could appreciate that Jennifer DuBois debut novel Cartwheel means so much Lily Hayes is studying abroad in Beunos Aires when she is accused of killing her housemate Katy Kellers There s no murder weapon to suggest Lily is guilty of the crime besides cleverly placed red herrings Red herrings such as her impassive appearance following the murder bloodstained lips and an irrational cartwheel done while in police holding A few other instances are thrown in about the novel in order to sway the minds of readers one way or the other This is essentially the point How can we know for sure if she did it or notJennifer DuBois challenges us to put aside what we want to believe and what we should believe to accept the truth that no one will ever actually know what happened that dreadful night unless we were there What or how should a killer act How or should an innocent person behave Is there a diffrence Lily is either so cold that she s able to do a cartwheel bizarre but not calculated enough to know that she should have asked for a lawyer once it was obvious she was under suspicion By way of richly drawn characters and a plot that s ripped from the headlines Jennifer DuBois takes readers on an exploration into the many mysteries in life including human behavior the complexities fo truth and what we choose to accept is real in the shades of grey We watch each character struggle with their belief in Lily s innocence or her guilt I was left unable to decide which side of the fence I fell on In ending Cartwheel is a must read by a promising new voice in the literary world I challenge any reader to choose a side and then end this novel not wanting closure Closure which is so ambiguous to true life

Jennifer duBois · 0 Read Free read Í PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook · Jennifer duBois Cartwheel Free read À PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook 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. Although there s been discussion that this novel is based on the Amanda Knox story it is accurate to say that it is inspired by it and I think that if you go into it with that approach you won t be comparing for authenticity DuBois has taken many liberties with the familiar Knox chronicle so that it is a decidedly different story It reads like a mosaic of a family and a haunting labyrinth of mirrorsAmerican exchange student Lily Hayes on the verge of 21 travels to Buenos Aires to study abroad for a semester She plans to immerse herself in the culture improve her Spanish and re define herself As it is she feels that her parents perceive her as an afterthought Tragedy struck the family before she was born Her parents lost a 2 year old daughter Janie to a blood dyscrasia and now she and her younger sister Anna feel like props in their parents lives a consolation prize to the sacred and forever 2 year old sisterLily and her roommate Katy Kellers live with a host family and Lily feels the prickliness of being poorly appraised by the family and is always getting in trouble with them due to her guileless na vet She begins a romance with the mercurial neighbor Sebastien LeCompte another fall out of tragedy His parents who were spies died in a plane crash leaving him a young millionaire in an old crumbling house next door to Lily and Katy Five weeks later Katy is found brutally murdered Lily is the prime suspect These details and events are all revealed very early in the novel and set up the meat of the story s riddleThe novel unfolds gradually even leisurely as DuBois takes the time to pause and dig deeply into each character The chapters alternate between characters and time periods and the reader sees circumstances and events through a prism of different eyes and sensibilities and prejudices and through the personal histories of Lily her parents the prosecutor Sebastien and Anna There is tragedy or fierce rejectionabandonment in everyone s past and how that affects each one s judgment and awareness is germane to the evolution of the storyAs Lily says of her parents Andrew and Maureen about their divorcewhen it finally came after years of existing in a collective state of medicated and vacant life tolerance they merely drifted off into separate ethers and that was that And the death of Janielife was shortyes a terrible thing had happenedlong long ago and one day everyone would be dead and nobody would get any extra points for having hated life so much Because Andrew and Maureen did hate life really they were just always very polite about itCARTWHEEL does not fit the mold of genre crime fiction If you are looking for a pulse pounding propulsive cat and mouse thriller this likely won t satisfy that desire Dubois novel progresses at a dilatory pace it is a psychological character study and a penetrating reflection of what it is to face the impossible odds of life How do you reconcile the immutable past with the unreliable presentI don t think that Lily s guilt or innocence is even central to DuBois purpose in writing the story More importantly it s about Lily as seen through a spectrum of various observers for example her inappropriate behaviors a cartwheel a kiss a cold reaction to murder The fact of Lily s guilt or innocence is not the apogee of this novel at all Rather it is built on the uestion of perception How do we perceive others and how do others perceive us How much of that is determined by how we see ourselves In the hands of the prosecutor Eduardo Campos he has the power to force his will on others In the case of Lily her carelessness and reckless free spiritedness could destroy her life She is powerless against the forces of a foreign country or the capricious media s thirst for tawdry scandalAs Eduardo imagines saying to LilyWe must act as though our understanding as limited as it might be is the most panoramic and complete understanding possible We must act as though everything in this life counts as though we only have one shot to get things right We must act as though nobody would see the truth if we did not see the truthThere s a set of facts and there s forensic evidence and then there is the truth Do the facts support the truth Or are they two different organisms CARTWHEEL weighs facts that reflect remembrance and evasions that simulate lies to safeguard the truth This compelling book throughout ponders the uncertainty that dwells within us and contemplates how we ache for merciful hope against the most ruthless odds
