Elwoodä_s only salvation is his friendship with fellow äóìdelinquentä_ Turner, which deepens despite Turnerä_s conviction that Elwood is hopelessly naive, that the world is crooked, and that the only way to survive is to scheme and avoid trouble. As life at the Academy becomes ever more perilous, the tension between Elwoodä_s ideals and Turnerä_s skepticism leads to a decision whose repercussions will echo down the decades.ŒæBased on the real story of a reform school that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children,ŒæThe Nickel BoysŒæis a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers.
