This book review is for: Defending Jacob (read in August 2015)
This was under the category: "A book a friend recommended"
This book is about a 14 year old boy who is stabbed and killed in a park in a small town. The victim has one fingerprint on him and it is the fingerprint of the DA's son - Jacob. The book goes through the case and how his parents struggle to believe that their son, Jacob, didn't do it. The DA's family history comes in to play because his father and grandfather were both violent men.
The book moves through the case and makes the reader waiver about Jacob's ability to commit this crime and being sure he did it. I did enjoy it, and the ending was very interesting to say the least.
So - take time to read this one. It got 7000 reviews on Amazon!
