Summary
Into a memoir that is gripping, funny, heart Breaking, and unforgettable, Walter Dean Myers Richly weaves the details of his Harlem childhood In the 1940s and 1950s: a loving home life with his adoptive parents, Bible school, street games, and the vitality of his neighborhood. Although Walter spent much of his time either getting into trouble or on the basketball court, secretly he was a voracious reader and an aspiring writer. But as his prospects for a successful future diminished, the values he had been taught at home, in school, and in his community seemed worthless, and he turned to the streets and his books for comfort. Here in his own words is the story of one of the Strongest, voices in children's and young adult Literature today
