The Secret is Out

If you could sum up Boystown 4 in three words, what would they be?

Gritty, suspenseful, addictive.

When Nick realizes he really loved Harker.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't pinpoint just one.

Who was the most memorable character of Boystown 4 and why?

Nick. He is smart and stupid at the same time. I keep wondering when he's going to wise up and stop being so clueless about what's going on around him. (No spoilers)

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the 5th audiobook.
