Summary A powerful story of a man's undoing at the hands of his greatest admirer. At the South Carolina military academy the Citadel, amid the tumult of the 1960s, Cadet Peter Cates is an anomaly. He is a gifted writer, a talented basketball player, and a good student, but his outward successes do little to impress his abusive father. Instead, Cates is mentored by Lt. Colonel Courvoisie, an imposing and inspiring man whom the cadets have nicknamed "the Boo." But when Cates writes a searing letter condemning the school's meek response to a stabbing on campus, his bond with the Boo will be threatened as both are forced to confront what it means to be a man of honor. Set against the richly drawn military school backdrop that Conroy would return to in his bestseller The Lords of Discipline, The Boo is an unforgettable story of duty, loyalty, and standing up for what is right in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
