"Promise Boys" is a beautifully written book that explores the complexities of friendship, loyalty, and the impact of trauma on young lives. The book is set in a small town in New York and follows three friends, Jonah, Cole, and Vivi, while they navigate the challenges during the aftermath of a tragedy that rocked their community. The book is told from Jonah's perspective and the author does a great job capturing the perspective of a teenage boy. I really liked the depth of the characters that the author provided. Also, it was written with a lyrical and poetic prose style which was beautiful and a pleasure to read. Overall, "Promise Boys" is a powerful and moving coming-of-age novel that will resonate with readers of all ages. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope.
