Description

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Nick Jonas, thissearing memoir of fraternity culture and the perils of hazingprovides an unprecedented windowinto the emotional landscape of young men. Reeling from a terrifying assault that has left him physically injured and psychologically shattered, nineteen-year-old Brad Land must also contend with unsympathetic local police, parents who can barely discuss the incident (as they call it), a brother riddled with guilt but unable to slow down enough for Brad to keep up, and the feeling that he ll never be normal again. When Brad s brother enrolls at Clemson University and pledges a fraternity, Brad believes he s being left behind once and for all. Desperate to belong, he follows. What happens there in the name of brotherhood, and with the supposed goal of forging a scholar and a gentleman from the raw materials of boyhood involves torturous late-night hazing, heartbreaking estrangement from his brother, and, finally, the death of a fellow pledge. Ultimately, Brad must weigh total alienation from his newfound community against accepting a form of brutality he already knows too well. From the Hardcover edition."
