This is a powerful novel about two young men from diverse backgrounds that become friends while attending college. A contemporary coming of age story exploring the relationships between friends, parents and siblings. Demonstrating how ultimately good fundamental values can help one overcome most obstacles in life. It reminded me of F. Scott Fitzgerlad's writing.....lyrical and moody.

A really fine novel, with marvelously complex characters. It's a story of loyalty, friendship, & betrayal--and loyalty in spite of betrayal--and, finally, a story of learning to love and be loved, of learning to be bound to those you love, of learning to be surprised by life, of learning character.
