The Boys of Summer by Richard Cox
In 1979, 9-year-old Todd Willis is left in a coma after barely escaping the tornado that demolished his Texas town. Four years later, Todd awakens but struggles to separate reality from the fiction that he dreamt while he was asleep for years. He befriends four other boys, and together, they come of age over one, long Summer — but a terrible secret drives them apart. Twenty-five years later, they reunite and while reminiscing, realize that their memory of the past doesn't align with reality and so they come together once more to discover the truth in The Boys of Summer.
