The Boys & Girls of America is a work of fiction in the literary, suspense, and sociocultural drama subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Christopher Gould. Set in the early nineties, the story follows our protagonist James Castle through a series of tumultuous events when his recent successful novel sees him welcomed with open arms to work at a college that rejected him several years prior. Seemingly set to experience all that he missed out on before, James is horrified when a stranger seems to know how to uncover the dark family secrets that led James to create his celebrated novel in the first place. And these are secrets that James doesn’t want anyone to know about.
Author Christopher Gould creates a tense and highly dramatic work that slow-burns its way into your mind the more involved you get with James’s journey. What begins as a detailed and character-led journey, much in the traditional literary style, suddenly ramps up its consequences mid-way through and develops into a suspenseful thriller that questions what motivates people to drive themselves toward success at any cost. I also really enjoyed the themes and atmosphere of the early nineties and American college life at the time, which sparks huge nostalgia and creates the perfect setting for such an intense psychological and sociocultural story to take place. Overall, The Boys & Girls of America is an accomplished work that fans of literary fiction and suspenseful character dramas are sure to enjoy, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
