Monster

Monster : by Walter Dean Myers

The main character, Steve Harmon is put on trial for murder after robbing a drugstore in Harlem and killing the store`s owner. The book is in the format of a screenplay, because Harmon wants to make his own movie and follows the events of the trial, where the jury decides whether he is guilty or not. When he is in his cell, he writes on pieces of paper and jots down his thoughts in his notebook. The trial brings in many perspectives to the case, such as a witness, a detective, and a rat. Will Harmon be a free man or will he serve 25 years to life in prison?
