A very intriguing cover brought me to a not such an interesting book. A story about Walter Dean Myer talks about the details of his Harlem childhood in the 1940s/1950s. He loved home life with his adopted parents, Bible school, street games, and the livelihood of his neighborhood. Although, Myer spent much of his time either getting into trouble or on the basketball court, secretly he was an eager reader and a hopeful writer. But as his picture for a successful future weakened, the values he had been taught at home, in school, and in his community seemed insignificant, and he turned to the streets and his books for comfort. It had a reoccurring theme over growing; learning and growing. For example, when he has to understand hitting someone when they make fun of his speech impediment is not always the right thing to do, and most the time get's him in trouble, but the right thing to do is to just ask them to stop. Even though I did not find the book to be as interesting as I hoped, it was new to learn about someone like Myer to me. His obstacles and ways of overcoming them are unique to what I have seen in my life. It could be the different cultures and times we grew up in or just show how different people can truly be. Much otherwise it was not more than average, not very intriguing, and didn't keep me hooked to want to keep reading. It truly depends on what you like to whether or not you should read this book, for me, not a first pick. But for someone who enjoys history and biography's, this might be your cup of tea.
