Title: 28 Boys
Release Date: March 30, 2017
Underneath these gang tattoos beats a heart three times a year. I’m a slow puncture death, a murderer, a rapist, and a number. I killed my best friend. Death doesn’t stalk me, it walks ahead of me by twenty-eight paces.
I went home after I sold my soul to the devils. I thought life would begin, I was a free man, instead within days the bullets fly and my last hope dies with the slain. There is nothing left to live for in this world. I belong to the 28s, I’ll always belong to the 28s.
The woman across the road judges me, she hates me, and takes every opportunity to let me know it.
Yet, somehow, when grief etched our names down in the book of the dead, we dared be bold enough to find love.
I’m not a good man, and I’m not pretty. I come from the Cape Flats where my life was reduced to a prison cell number. In all this ugliness I found beauty, innocence, and forgiveness. I can’t forgive myself for the crimes I’ve committed, but I’ll die trying to earn hers.
In a world where nothing matters, she does.
28 Boys contains foreign language, and South Africanisms throughout the story, this was done to stay true to the nature of the characters and setting of the story. there are not typos they are intentional. 18+ due to content, and triggers.
I honestly don’t know how to put into words on how this book effected me. It opened my mind, that anyone no matter what kind of situation you are in, someone is out there caring and loving you, whether you deserve it or not. This story is NOT a romance story, however it is a love story. In a world full of hate, crime, and love ones killed, you wouldn’t think love can survive.
28 Boys shows unconditional love and the struggle of surviving. Be prepared to have your heart ripped out and stomped on. I’m pretty sure Ashleigh is sipping on my tears. Great Read.
