Late 60's in a small town called Brewster in New York three boys and a young girl come of age Charles Manson was in the news being drafted for the Vietnam War was a real threat and Woodstock was happening a short distance away these were circumstances happening outside their homes but the real threat and the hurt would come from the place they should have been the safest their own homesI was very young during this time period but I remember my best friend's brother being drafted seeing him in his uniform leaving for boot camp wondering if he would have any life left when he returned Jon and Ray are such wonderful characters dealing with the hurts in their families in the only way they knew how Good boys troubled boys boys the reader becomes emotionally involved with want to save Heartbreaking and powerful such a wonderful and poignant book nostalgic the tone of the time perfect Jon runs track and that becomes his outlet Ray and his family secrets things he must not tell and a little brother that he loves and to whom he feels responsible First love and friendship in all its glory and hardship All seniors wondering how their lives will play out how the world would change where they would find themselves in the future As they enter the seventies things will change the pace of the books speeds up and a horrifying and heartbreaking incident will leave them all reeling and all their lives will never be the same As Jon track coach tells him You'll be okay You can't see it now but life goes on That's the thing it goes on with or without youMaybe it's the weather or that it is getting dark so early and is a bit depressing but I think this is only the second book that I finished with a lump in my throat and a tissue in my hand Friendship pain and memories the resilience of the human experience
