Walter Dean Myers “Monster”

Myers is an award-winning young adult author. His novel, Monster , published in 1999, earned him both the Michael L. Printz and a Coretta Scott King Award in 2000. Written in a style that is part-screenplay and part-diary, Monster centers on the life of 16-year-old Steve Harmon as he stands trial for his role in the murder of a Harlem drugstore owner.
