Defending Jacob by William Landay

I am currently reading this book for my AP Lit class. I apsolutley love it so far! I am very interested in the court house scene. I love cop dramas such as Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Bones, Rizzoli & Isles, CSI: Miami, and things like that. If you are into those types of shows, this is something you might be interested in.

"Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: His fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.
Every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy. Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. Andy must. He’s his father. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies, as the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own—between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he’s tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.
Award-winning author William Landay has written the consummate novel of an embattled family in crisis—a suspenseful, character-driven mystery that is also a spellbinding tale of guilt, betrayal, and the terrifying speed at which our lives can spin out of control."

I will post when I am finished to let you know how I liked it!


Sorry Its Been Awhile. . .Grave Mercy Review

Hey guys! Sorry its been so long but as I am currently a Senior in High School, my life has been extremely hectic. I rarely have time to read let alone post about it. However, I did recently read Grace Mercy by Robin Lafevers. I really liked it however, at times it was slow. If you like the medieval scene, this book is for you. I am one of those people. I love the courts and castles, the the threat of invading countries, and the betrayal of those who are known to be your allies. The romance aspect to this novel is extremely slow due to the fact that the protagonist is loyal to her convent and her God. She never wanted love nor did she expect to find it. This book has so many different things going on. To me it could even be classified as a mystery if you will. If this sounds interesting to you, look into it, read it, and comment and let me know what you thought! Hopefully I can find more time to post since I have a computer class everyday. So until my next post, have a great week!
