A Book Review
David Ebershoff, the editor-at-large for The Random House Publishing Group says this is "the kind of book you'll have to discuss with someone when you finish."
I couldn't disagree more.
Jennifer Dubois says her book was "loosely inspired by the story of Amanda Knox." Her use of "loosely" makes me laugh. It's completely and totally inspired by Amanda Knox's experience! It's Brazil instead of Italy and the names of her characters are certainly different, but so much is the exact same!
David, sweetie, the world has already discussed. For 6 years and usually after airings of "48 Hours" and "Dateline NBC."
Save yourself some time. Google Amanda Knox and read the Wikipedia entries. Only substitute Amanda with Lily, Meredith with Katy, and Raffaele with Sebastian.
Done? Good. Now you can say you've read this book.
