This is the true story of four young boys. Four lifelong friends. Intelligent, fun-loving, wise beyond their years, they are inseparable. Their potential is unlimited, but they are content to live within the closed world of New York City's Hell's Kitchen. And to play as many pranks as they can on the denizens of the street. They never get caught. And they know they never will. Until one disastrous summer afternoon. On that day, what begins as a harmless scheme goes horribly wrong. And the four find themselves facing a year's imprisonment in the Wilkinson Home for Boys. The oldest of them is fifteen, the youngest twelve. What happens to them over the course of that year - brutal beatings, unimaginable humiliation - will change their lives forever. Years later, one has become a lawyer. One a reporter. And two have grown up to be murderers, professional hitmen. For all of them, the pain and fear of Wilkinson still rages within. Only one thing can erase it. Revenge. To exact it, they will twist the legal system. Commandeer the courtroom for their agenda. Use the wiles they observed on the streets, the violence they learned at Wilkinson. If they get caught this time, they only have one thing left to lose: their lives.… (més)

Not sure of the issue on this BUT the book I have, with this ISBN, has a published date of for the First Edition of August 1995.

For some reason this book did not get into my library when I first joined Good Reads. Excellent very moving story well written and very compelling. ( )

A well written account of four young boys who experience sustained physical and sexual abuse when incarcerated in a remand home for juveniles. The novel explores the adverse effects of these experiences on the boys as adults and how, when a murder is committed which implicates two of the boys, the others seek to utilise this as an opportunity for revenge on their torturers. It explores the themes of friendship, loyalty and resilience and while an uncomfortable read at times, it is also very gripping ( )

I've seen the movie years ago and saw the book on a sale rack and decided to read it - it really is an impactful story. Having a son about the age of these boys made it an even harder read than it already is. ( )

A great story and movie. Personally I think the movie was great, definitely a classic, but the book was better. This is not a true story. Much of this was elaborated on, people in it are real but have never heard of the author, his friends, or the guards in question. The boy's home is not a real place although there's definitely been places like it. And there was controversy back when it originally came out. Like most people probably, I tried looking this up, and that was my finding. Still makes for a great story though! ( )
