Gentlemen by Michael Northrop

Micheal, Tommy, Mixer, and Bones aren't just from the wrong side of the tracks--they're from the wrong side of everything. Except for Mr. Haberman, their remedial English teacher, no one at their high school takes them seriously. Haberman calls them "gentlemen," but everyone else ignores them--or, in Bones's case, is dead afraid of them. When one of their close-knit group goes missing, the clues all seem to point in one direction: to Mr. Haberman.

Gritty, fast-paced, and brutally real, this debut takes an unflinching look at what binds friends together--and what can tear them apart.

I must be on some kind of streak. Seriously.

I have been wanting to read this book for ages. It sounded like a good, suspenseful book, and I finally was able to find it at my local library. (I'm a strict read-it-before-I-buy-it kind of girl.)

I was so disappointed. It wasn't at all what I was expecting--and not in a good way. It was twisted and a bit sinister. I've read some good reviews for it, but it just wasn't my style.

You be the judge on this one. I really don't have much to say about it.

Happy Reading!
