    Exciting and Adventurous

    Somewhere in the Darkness by Walter Dean Myers is a book for those who want to know how it is to lose a parent, then have a parent come back suddenly. Crab suddenly wants to know his son, Jimmy Little. Mama Jean lets him go. Crab and Jimmy travel Chicago, Arkansas, and Tennessee. Crab finds out that he has liver disease. Will Crab live long enough to tell Jimmy how he feels? Read the book to find out! Somewhere in the Darkness is good, but it is not my type of book to read. It is very informative. I find it difficult to read over and over again like I usually read other books. Walter Dean Myers is a good writer, but I still give this book 2 stars.

    Jimmy is 15 years old. He lived with his Grand mother (momma jean). His dad was put in prison, and just out of nowhere he shows up at Jimmy's house. Jimmy is facd with the decision to go with his dad or stay with momma jean. Read the book if you want to find out what happens.

    Somewhere in the back of my bookshelf

    Personally I thought this book STUNK!!! I have to admit though some of this book is OK but no part of this book is outstanding. I've read other Walter Dean Myers books and come to the conclusion that he isn't my favorite author, though I guess if you like book about family values this is a book for you.

    Darkness Somewhere

    Somewhere In The Darkness by Walter Dean Myers. There mostly always at the apartment building that's where Jimmy and his grandma lives. Not listen to anybody until you have proof there telling the truth. Things are going good for Jimmy, until he meets Crab, a man with somthing he has to prove. Maybe Crabs not sure of what it is, Jimmy's not sure he wants to know, it maybe the last time Crab has to show Jimmy who he was, and who is he. Jimmy has a hard time believing, but he does really find out.
