In rural Virginia, Young and Pak Yoo run an experimental medical treatment device known as the Miracle Submarine-- a pressurized oxygen chamber that patients enter for therapeutic 'dives' with the hopes of curing issues like autism or infertility. When the Miracle Submarine mysteriously explodes, killing two people, a dramatic murder trial upends the Yoos' small community. The ensuing trial uncovers unimaginable secrets from that night-- trysts in the woods, mysterious notes, child-abuse charges-- as well as tense rivalries and alliances among a group of people driven to extraordinary degrees of desperation and sacrifice. -- adapted from jacket

I cannot wait for others to read this book. There is so much to discuss - living with a disability, parenting a child with a disability, immigration, consent, experimental therapy - but despite all the important issues in this story, the issues never take precedence over the characters. This is primarily a book about people and how they interact and relate - both to themselves and to others - and it's going to be an explosive title in April.
