Book #58–Defending Jacob

51DjbSWRrbL._AA160_My wife recommended this to me and it was great. Defending Jacob is the story of a kid killed at a high school, and when the DA begins investigating, he realizes his son is a suspect. He must drop the case when his son is arrested, and it’s an amazing story of his journey to support his son, and investigate what happened.

The book goes back and forth between the DA testifying in the future and the past, where he's struggling to deal with the situation and uncover the truth. He loses himself, believing in his son, avoiding his marriage, and trying to keep his family.

As a parent, it's a tough book to read. How would I react? I think I'd be more like the mother, but it's one I recommend.
