This was a really good book. It's the story of Joe Talbert, college student, who has to write a biography for his English class. He goes to a Nursing Home and meets Carl Iverson. Carl is dying of cancer. Carl is also a convicted murderer. As Joe listens to Carl's story and delves deeper into the murder and court case, Joe is starting to think that Carl is innocent. Can Joe and his neighbor Lila clear Carl before he dies? Excellent book. I had to stop reading when it got too intense. Love it. Highly recommended.
