Teen reads; student companions to young adult literature


Part of the series titled Teen Reads: Student Companions to Young Adult Literature which chronicles the lives of writers known for their young adult work, this volume is about Walter Dean Myers. Myers' works include fictions vital to the canon of young adult literature for African-Americans but he also has written adventure and mystery books, poetry, nonfiction, and books of photographs. The book includes synopsizes of each important work as well as chapters about the author's life, encouraging young adult readers to think beyond the pages of Myers' works. The title is written in a clear voice for young adult readers but engages in discussions and topics to encourage a deeper reading of Myers' books.
