Scott has a beautiful way of telling the story of 4 teens during their senior year of high school in 1980's Georgia.

Gus, Cassady, Ogie and Darwin, best friends since way back when,
are now brothers in the S.S.D.
[Society of Social Deviants, Protectors of the Gethsemane Gardens]

While reading about them dealing with absent parents,
a forbidden relationship,
a rape of one friend and the death of another,
a sleezy lawyer and a dying mother,
I felt myself growing so attached to Gus and the gang.

I started reading Young Men Shall See at 9am
and finished it the same day at 4pm.
I could not put it down!

I don't give these off often, but this book gets
5 star epic review status!
