Our next Lit Reads title, The Nickel Boys carries on the tradition of the southern literary Gothic in this wrenching, brutal new novel. Following Elwood Curtis, a young African-American student, The Nickel Boys tells the story of a harsh reform school in Florida, set against the backdrop of the Jim Crow. Building on true events, this bold, blazing novel, exploring racism and the brutality of a unjust system, is necessary reading for the contemporary world.
