Cartwheel free pdf 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.

"A smart, literary thriller [for] fans of Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl.""--"The Huffington Post"" ""Psychologically astute . . . DuBois hits [the] larger sadness just right and dispenses with all the salacious details you can readily find elsewhere. . . . The writing in "Cartwheel" is a pleasure--electric, fine-tuned, intelligent, conflicted. The novel is engrossing, and its portraiture hits delightfully and necessarily close to home."--"The New York Times Book Review" (Editor's Choice) "Marvelous . . . a gripping tale . . . Every sentence crackles with wit and vision. Every page casts a spell."--Maggie Shipstead, author of "Seating Arrangements" "[You'll] break your own record of pages read per minute as you tear through this book."--"Marie Claire" "A convincing, compelling tale . . . The story plays out in all its well-told complexity."--New York "Daily News" "[A] gripping, gorgeously written novel . . . The emotional intelligence in "Cartwheel "is so sharp it's almost ruthless--a tabloid tragedy elevated to high art. [Grade: ] A-""--Entertainment Weekly" "Sure-footed and psychologically calibrated . . . Reviewers of duBois's first novel, "A Partial History of Lost Causes, " called it brainy and beautiful, a verdict that fits this successor. . . . As the pages fly, the reader hardly notices that duBois has stretched the genre of the criminal procedural."--"Newsday" "The power of "Cartwheel "resides in duBois' talent for understanding how the foreign world can illuminate the most deeply held secrets we keep from others, and ourselves."--"Chicago Tribune"
