Summary
All it takes is one hit on the football field, and suddenly Ash's life doesn't look quite the way he remembers it. Impossible though it seems, he's been hit into another dimension, and keeps falling into universes that are almost-but-not-really his own, each one stranger than the last. And if he isn't careful, the world he's learning to see more clearly could blink out of existence.

Summary
Forced to choose between abortion or adoption, Olivia Carson's younger sister, Lily, runs away from home. Sixteen and pregnant, she never returns. But she writes. Once a year, Lily mails a picture of her son, Josh, to Olivia until his thirteenth year. Then it's Josh himself who arrives at Olivia's house, alone, terrified, and in possession of a notarized declaration from Lily. It begins, "In the event I go missing..." Josh has difficulty talking. He can't read or write, but he's a prolific artist, exhibiting skill beyond his age. His drawings are as detailed as they are horrific. Olivia soon realizes Josh's artwork tells a story. There's more to his arrival and to Lily's untimely disappearance than it seems. Using the drawings as a road map, Olivia traces Josh's path back to his mom. Each drawing sheds light on Lily's past and reveals a darkness that forces Olivia to question everything she thought she knew about her family.

Summary
In 2008, a cheerful ambulance-chasing lawyer named Jay Shenk persuades the grieving Keener family to sue a private LA hospital. Their son Wesley has been transformed by a routine surgery into a kind of golem, absent all normal functioning or personality, walking in endless empty circles around his hospital room. In 2019, Shenk--still in practice but a shell of his former self--is hired to defend Wesley Keener's father when he is charged with murder . . . the murder, as it turns out, of the expert witness from the 2008 hospital case. Shenk's adopted son, a fragile teenager in 2008, is a wayward adult, though he may find his purpose when he investigates what really happened to the murdered witness. Two thrilling trials braid together, medical malpractice and murder, jostling us back and forth in time. The Quiet Boy is a book full of mysteries, not only about the death of a brilliant scientist, not only about the outcome of the medical malpractice suit, but about the relationship between children and their parents, between the past and the present, between truth and lies. At the center of it all is Wesley Keener, endlessly walking, staring empty-eyed, in whose quiet, hollow body may lie the fate of humankind.
