Join the Germantown African American Authors Book Club to discuss "Promise Boys" by Nick Brooks.

The African American Authors Book Club will meet in the Meeting Room, located on the lower level of the library.

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. When Moore ends up murdered, the trio emerges as the case's prime suspects. All three maintain their innocence, and they band together to track down the real killer before they are arrested. But is the true culprit hiding among them? -- adapted from jacket
