The Boys In The Boat by Daniel James Brown

Club Rating 4.1

We were struck with how beautiful rowing/crew is and how horrific Joe's stepmother was. These boys were missing a sense of belong and unity that they gained from rowing. It was a story of perseverance, understanding you have one shot at something and how all these boys were family to each other and readily bonded. Some felt tht there were some gaps in the story but there was power to the story. Some felt that the story lagged.
