The Frontier Boys by John Grooters: A Book Review


This is a story adapted from the film of the same title, it is is about 4 young men and their relationships with one another.
The first chapters introduce them to us as all having been  raised  together in Michigan, we something of their sporting life and their inter-relationship with one another. The main emphasis of the story is around the theme of temptation and sin and how one can be restored. Two brothers Mike and Brent are key players in the story, Mike the elder brother lures his brother into a drugs gang with dire consequences. The drug Lord a man called Sean, tries to see how brave they are and gives Mike a gun so that they can shoot TJ a young black man who is also son of the Pastor. Brent tries to stop his brother shooting but it all goes horribly wrong and TJ soon finds himself in hospital fighting for his life. In the meantime the other Frontier boys try to find out who has shot their friend. they manage to track down the car that was used but then their own car is damaged and the hiding place of the car is burnt down by the criminals.
TJ’s Father finds himself struggling with all the problems that come when one’s son has been shot, TJ has been placed on life support but there is no trace of any brain activity, should he let his son’s organs be harvested and admit that his son is really dead? The story weaves back and forth between the account of the pastors struggles in the hospital and how the frontier boys are coping.
I don’t want to give the whole plot away but suffice it to say Brent confesses to his unwilling involvement in the gang, which leads to the arrest of the gang and the drug lord.
If you want to know what happened to TJ and the other Frontier Boys you will have to read the book.
