Life Among Giants, by Bill Roorbach
Reviewer: Angelica Martin; age 26; single; Los Angeles.
Angelica's assessment: At age 17, David “Lizard” Hochmeyer finds his world shattered when both his parents are mysteriously murdered. In the decades that follow, he and his sister devote themselves to piecing together the crime—even though it means ruining their lives in the process. Their fascinating journey highlights the importance of steering your own fate, and it left me pondering where my own life will lead.
To buy: $25, amazon.com.
