    I just finished a book called One of Us is Lying. It's a young-adult/teen murder-mystery, where four students are accused of murdering a fellow classmate.

    Just to let you know, there's two sequels: "The Upside of Unrequitted" and "Leah on the Offbeat". Not a lot of people seem to know.

    Read these two almost together:

    The Emperor of all Maladies - Siddhartha Mukherjee
    ^Only because I'm a med student and it won the Pulitzer Prize

    Kafka on the Shore - Murakami HarukiS
    ^Surreal but captivating.

    Captivating indeed. Mesmerizing, in parts. Kafka on the Shore is one of my all-time favorite novels. Glad you enjoyed it.
