Good read, but not as good as the "Night Bus" ( )
  tjsjohanna | Jul 9, 2007 |
A smart, thrilling mystery. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough towards the end. ( )

I found this book interesting. It is told through the point-of-view of a professor and one of his students, a woman named Iris who spent the semester living in her car. Iris documents her experience in a diary, which is eventually found by the professor.

It was an interesting story and I felt it was well written. ( )

Lars remembered a tree with stars caught in its hair, a strange and marvelous image that he tried to convey to Emma, visible only as a dim shape in the whitish morning light.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076530273X, Hardcover)

Professor Jason Larson ("Lars"), a scholar of Romantic and Victorian poetry at a prestigious Connecticut university, has an unusual way of looking at the world. He sees romance and beauty in everyday life, and lives life to the fullest. He treasures every moment with his family, every sunset -- and every beautiful coed who comes his way. Young Iris Weed, a modern-day Thoreau (or so she would like to think), approaches Lars with a novel idea for an independent study: she wants to live in her truck for an entire semester, stripped of possessions and modern-day conveniences, and document her experience in a journal for possible publication. Smitten by Iris's ambition as well as her ivory skin, and literary flair move, Lars agrees to become her advisor, and everything goes swimmingly.

Until Iris is killed in a vicious attack in a parking lot.

And Lars, last seen arguing with Iris near the murder scene, is left holding the journal.
