The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Summary:  The author of the classic bestsellers the Secret History and The Little Friend returns with a brilliant, highly anticipated new novel. A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an explosion that takes the life of his mother. Alone and determined to avoid being taken in by the city as an orphan, Theo scrambles between nights in friendsí apartments and on the city streets.   He becomes entranced by the one thing that reminds him of this mother: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that soon draws Theo in the art underworld.  Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America.  It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art.
