New YA Book Club Title!

We've got a new title in our Young Adult Book Club in a Box collection! We're excited to present Monster by Walter Dean Myers. Monster is Printz Award winner, a National Book Award finalist, and a Coretta Scott King Award Author Honor.

From Goodreads : "This New York Times bestselling novel and National Book Award nominee from acclaimed author Walter Dean Myers tells the story of Steve Harmon, a teenage boy in juvenile detention and on trial. Presented as a screenplay of Steve's own imagination, and peppered with journal entries, the book shows how one single decision can change our whole lives.

Fade In: Interior: Early Morning In Cell Block D, Manhattan Detention Center.

Steve (Voice-Over)
Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No, not my life, but of this experience. I'll call it what the lady prosecutor called me ... Monster."

Are you interested in getting this title for you book club? Let us know! Contact me (Ally) at or 601-432-4117 for more information!
