Monster by Walter Dean Myers
Steve Harmon is put on trial for being an accomplice in a robbery, then murder, in a drug store in Harlem New York. James King, and Richard “Bobo” Evans are also on trial. Bobo and King both claim Steve was involved in the robbery, but he claims he wasn’t even at the drugstore at all. The whole story is written like a screen play for a movie because Steve wants to make movies. but there are also parts in the book written by Steve in his cell. The book has a great way of keeping the reader on edge and wondering what will happen next. It is a very good book for readers who enjoy suspense. And I highly recommend.
