Defending Jacob was an interesting view from a father, Andy, whose 14 year old son, Jacob, is accused of murdering a fellow student. William Landay does an excellent job of putting you the reader in the mind of Andy and how he deals and copes with everything that is going on. This book had me from the very beginning and never let me go. I read this book faster than I wanted. I tried to slow down to prolong it but I had to know what happen next. Very good book highly recommend it.
