The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
We’ve all had experiences that we feel no one can relate to. For Theo Decker, surviving an accident that took his mother’s life is only the beginning of his social retreat. Abandoned by his father, Theo moves in with a wealthy family that struggles to understand his past, and the only thing that brings Theo comfort is a painting that reminds him of his mother. Soon Theo begins to find others that can relate to his story — in the mysterious and dangerous underworld of the New York art scene. Will this new circle help Theo grieve, or only lead him to more tragedy?
