The Nickel Boys Book PDF summary

Tallahassee, Florida, 1960s: Brought up by his loving, strict and clear-sighted grandmother, Elwood Curtis is about to enroll at the local black college. But one innocent mistake is enough to destroy his future, and so Elwood arrives instead at the Nickel Academy, which claims to provide training for its inmates to become "honorable and honest men".

The tension between Elwood's idealism and Turner's skepticism leads to a decision that will have decades-long repercussions...
