Cartwheel, by Jennifer DuBois.

DuBoisA fictional interpretation of the Amanda Knox case (I’m not giving anything away– the author mentions it in a prefatory note.)  For me, it’s more enjoyable reading it as fiction than as fact (or at least non-fiction (as the author mentions in a concluding note, “the act of imagining the experiences of fictional people develops our sense of empathy, as well as our sense of humility, in regarding the experiences of real ones.”))
