Overview

All the Right Stuff by Walter Dean Myers

New York Times bestselling author Walter Dean Myers tackles the social contract from a teen’s perspective in his novel All the Right Stuff. In one of his most thought-provoking novels to date, Myers weaves together political philosophy, basketball, and making soup in Harlem, with the depth that defines his writing career.
 
After his father is shot and killed, Paul Dupree finds a summer job at a Harlem soup kitchen. Elijah, the soup man, questions Paul about tough life choices, even though Paul would rather be playing basketball. Over the summer, Paul begins to understand the importance of taking control of your life.
 
All the Right Stuff includes a Q&A between Walter Dean Myers and Ross Workman, coauthor of Kick.

At first, all the introductions to the political philosophies of the "social contract" may drag a bit as a political commentary instead of a novel, but you eventually find out it's applicable to many of the book's many interesting characters' perspectives and dilemmas. This book is best for deep thinkers who at the very least appreciate philosophy.
