Jenna brings in her favourite book of the year. And with a review like that, what else is there to say? The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead, is a fictional novel based on the history of a real reform school in Florida that warped and destroyed the lives of thousands of children. Although devastating, Jenna says this is one that you must read.
