Great movie...Fantastic book. Intriguing lawyer work mixed with a cocky yet brilliant lawyer as he gets caught up in a murder trial with a client he knows is guilty. Thats what I call a recipe for a great mystery. Connelly writes about Micky Haller, whose practice is set in the back seat of his Lincoln, tries to find a way to not in get with into trouble with law but yet find a way to help his conscience and bring a killer to justice. Amazing novel.
If you're going to read a Stephenie Meyer book, this is the one. I read it before I realized it was by the author of that Twilight crap. Thankfully, I didn't have to channel my inner teenage girl to enjoy it.
"Little Girls in Pretty Boxes" by Joan Ryan. Read it first when in middle school; found it again in high school; bought it while in college. By far, my favorite book of all time. A must-read for all gymnasts and gymnastics fans.
