The Tenth Circle

By: Jodi Picoult

The Tenth Circle follows the life of Daniel Stone, the only white boy in a native Eskimo village, who was teased mercilessly because he was different. He fought back, the baddest of the bad kids: stealing, drinking, and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush, where he honed his artistic talent, fell in love with a girl and got her pregnant. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself, jettisoning his anger to become a docile, devoted husband and father. Fifteen years later, Daniel is a comic book artist, his wife teaches Dante’s Inferno at a local college, and his daughter, Trixie, is the light of his life, and only knows her father as an even-tempered, mild-mannered man. Until, that is, she is date raped, and Daniel finds himself struggling with a rage that could destroy his family and his future.
