I think it's set when they are adults and one is now a cop and I think the boys were sent to a correction centre because of the trolley incident where they were treated badly which led to one of them possibly killing one of the perpetrators? I might have got some of that completely wrong though grin.

I really want to read it again!

Yep, Sleepers. Didn't know it was a book, remember watching the film as a teen.

Yay, thanks everyone! I've just checked on Amazon and it is Sleepers. I never knew it was a film so I might see if I can watch it as well smile.
