James Scott recommends
All the Castles Burned (2018)
"To read Michael Nye's ALL THE CASTLES BURNED is to immerse oneself in a fully realized world, and a narrative so confidently executed by its author that upon finishing, one should expect a diploma from its Rockcastle Preparatory Academy. Owen Webb and Carson Bly should resonate with anyone who has fallen under the spell of a new friendship, replete with all of its mysteries, attractions, and anxieties. ALL THE CASTLES BURNED is the rare book that bonds itself to the reader immediately, and hangs on until the very last page."
