Our next book is One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. A group of 9 people are trapped in the visa office at an Indian Consulate after a massive earthquake hits in an unnamed American city. After many attempts to find a way out of the debris formed around them, the group comes to the conclusion that there is nothing they can do but wait for some help. As they wait to be saved − or to die − they begin to tell each other stories, each recalling “one amazing thing” in their lives, sharing things they have never spoken of before. Their tales are tragic and life-affirming, revealing what it means to be human and the incredible power of story telling.

Cliff’s rigorous colleague–and girlfriend–Robin Decker suspects that his findings are fraudulent. As Robin makes her private doubts public and Cliff maintains his innocence, a life-changing controversy engulfs the lab and everyone in it.
