This is a story about a life long friendship between four boys. Having spent a year in prison as teenagers following a prank that goes wrong and suffering at the hands of the guards years later they grow up and decide to get revenge. I have read this book several times and each time I am completely gripped by the story and always end up in tears. Not a fun read but very inspirational and moving.
