Teen Reads November - "Monster" by Walter Dean Myers

monster.jpg Our next teen book discussion will be December 21st from 7:00-8:00 pm. Pick up books at the Circulation Desk.

"Monster" is what the prosecutor called 16-year-old Steve Harmon for his supposed role in the fatal shooting of a convenience-store owner. But was Steve really the lookout who gave the "all clear" to the murderer, or was he just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Steve chronicles the proceedings in movie script format, interspersed throughout his screenplay are journal entries of what Steve's life was like before the murder and his feelings about being held in prison during the trial. "They take away your shoelaces and your belt so you can't kill yourself no matter how bad it is. I guess making you live is part of the punishment."
