Promise Boys

January 31

The cover is set up like we are looking through a red screen at three young Black men. One is facing the reader and the other two are standing behind him but both are back to back facing out to the side. The front facing person is different because it's like two circles have been torn through the red surface to let us see his eyes. Promise Boys by Nick Brooks
Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

The Urban Promise Prep School vows to turn boys into men. As students, J.B., Ramón, and Trey are forced to follow the prestigious “program’s” strict rules. Extreme discipline, they’ve been told, is what it takes to be college bound, to avoid the fates of many men in their neighborhoods. This, the Principal Moore Method, supposedly saves lives.

But when Moore ends up murdered and the cops come sniffing around, the trio emerges as the case’s prime suspects. With all three maintaining their innocence, they must band together to track down the real killer before they are arrested. But is the true culprit hiding among them? — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
