About this product
- DescriptionNew York Times bestselling author and Printz Award winner Walter Dean Myers once again connects with teenagers everywhere in Darius & Twig, a vel about friendship and needing to live one's own dream. This touching and raw teen vel from the author of Monster, Kick, We Are America, Bad Boy, and many other celebrated literary works for children and teens is a Coretta Scott King Hor Book.Darius and Twig are an unlikely pair: Darius is a writer whose only escape is his alter ego, a peregrine falcon named Fury, and Twig is a middle-distance runner striving for athletic success. But they are drawn together in the struggle to overcome the obstacles that life in Harlem throws at them. The two friends must face down bullies, an abusive uncle, and the idea that they'll be stuck in the same place forever.Maria Russo, writing in the New York Times, included Darius & Twig on her list of great kids' books with diverse characters. She commented: The late Myers, one of the greats and a champion of diversity in children s books well before the cause got mainstream attention, is at his elegant, heartfelt best in this 2013 vel. It s about two friends growing up in Harlem, one a writer, one an athlete, facing daily challenges and trying to dream of a brighter future.
