I selected this book as the author, Walter Dean Myers, has received so many awards for his contributions to young adult literature.
The story is about Steve, a young man involved in a robbery where a killing occurred. Steve has studied film in school. He uses his skills to describe how he would portray life in detention and his trial as if he were creating a film.
This was a complex story. I think it deserves another reading before I understand how Steve is processing the events that will affect the rest of his and his family’s lives. I am not sure I would understand how he thinks even then. I finished not knowing if I thought Steve was innocent or guilty. Or what would become of him. It was not a happy ending for me.
