Drowned By Corn by Erika Hayasaki
One morning in 2010, four teenage boys in a small Illinois town went to work in a grain bin—one of those towering silver cylinders that contain corn and dominate the midwestern landscape. But something went terribly wrong. By day’s end, some would be alive. Others would not. A close-knit community would be devastated, forced to endure. This gripping true story centers on what happened to one courageous and flawed young man who survived, and how his life quickly spiraled out of control in the next two years. It is a story about love, unbreakable friendship, and “king” corn
This is a Kindle Single but it didn’t seem short to me at all. It’s a true story that had me glued to the pages, not wanting to stop for a second. I can’t imagine what it must have been like for these boys, or the emotions the survivors still carry today. A very gripping story.
I loved how the community pulled together. A very good book!
