Biondi releases third 'Boystown' installment

The third option in Jake Biondi's Boystown book series has been released.

In a press release, Biondi said, "'Season Three' picks up with the aftermath of the New Year's Eve explosion. While I won't reveal who lives and who dies, I will say this: Lives will be forever changed." Local entertainers such as Amy Armstrong and Steve Grand are featured in the third series.

In 2013, Biondi published the first 10 "episodes" in book form as Boystown: Season One. The sequel, Boystown: Season Two, was released in July 2014.
