In the Image by Dara Horn
Dara Horn's In the Image begins with the death of a teenage girl by an errant driver. Her death brings together her best friend, Leora, and her grandfather, Bill. The novel tells both of their stories, Leora's forward in time as she becomes an observer of life and her Jewish faith, and Bill's backwards in time to his childhood. Tackling subjects of sorrow, joy, faith, history, and the Holocaust, this young author has turned out a debut novel that has garnered descriptions of "stunning and absorbing" and "a work of raw genius."
