The official synopsis of The Goldfinch tells us the tale of a 13-year-old boy Theodore "Theo" Decker, whose mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes Theo's life, "sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love.
