Monster Movie Tie-in Edition (Paperback)
This special paperback edition of the New York Times bestselling novel by acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers features poster art from the major motion picture adaptation All Rise, which stars Jennifer Hudson, Kelvin Harrison, Jr., and A$AP Rocky.
He’s young. He’s black. And sixteen-year-old Steve Harmon is on trial for murder.
A Harlem drugstore owner has been shot and killed during a robbery, and word is that Steve served as the lookout. Guilty or innocent, Steve has become a pawn in the system. He’s been called a monster, and worse.
As a way of coping with the horrific events that entangle him, Steve, an amateur filmmaker, decides to transcribe his trial into a movie script. But despite his efforts, reality is blurred until he can no longer tell who he is or what is the truth.
A New York Times bestseller and the first recipient of the Michael L. Printz award, Monster is Walter Dean Myers at his riveting best.
