3. The Rooster Bar

If you or a friend went to law school as a means to sit out the Great Recession, you’re no doubt familiar with the crushing debt and tough prospects faced by young lawyers. But what if you found out months before graduation that your law school was a scam on par with Trump University, and the only way to beat them was to drop out at the last minute? That’s exactly what happens in John Grisham’s The Rooster Bar. Bonus: This copy is signed by the author.
