Those Boys on the Hill
Those Boys on the Hill is a biographical coming-of-age story about three inner-city, African American brothers growing up in a group home in a farming community in Pennsylvania. Elliott and Iszel Glover use a mix of humor, sadness, and raw situational honesty to share the harrowing experiences that shaped the men they and their brother Jacque have become. Their narrative shines a light on group homes, foster care, and the grim realities of those who live through them. It is the cathartic telling of defying the odds in a system designed to fail them; of perseverance and survival; and ultimately of the resilience and tenacity of the human spirit.
