Wanna fill your free time with a bit of mystery? Cartwheel ($20), by Jennifer duBois, follows the fictional events and people involved with the murder of Katy, American exchange student Lily's roommate in Buenos Aires. Sound familiar? DuBois was inspired by the Amanda Knox case, and while the larger part of the plot is loosely similar, the novel's detailed prose is chillingly original. At its core, it's a psychological study of individuals and the dynamics of relationships.
