The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead
Pulitzer Prize-winning The Underground Railroad blew readers away, and we've all been anxiously awaiting what Colson Whitehead would do next. In The Nickel Boys, he brings us to Jim Crow-era Florida, where we meet two boys sentenced to a reform school. They quickly learn that life at The Nickel Academy is horrific and filled with unspeakable abuses, and these two boys have very different views on how to live life and survive. Based on a real place in Florida that operated for over 100 years, The Nickel Boys is another take-your-breath-away read from Whitehead.
