Monster

By Walter Dean Myers (4)

Show/Hide Info

The fiction of Walter Dean Myers typically grapples with the gritty issues, and Monster is no exception. Meyers deftly depicts events in the form of a screenplay and the journal entries of the sixteen-year old protagonist Steve Harmon. The young man fecklessly agrees to act as a lookout when young James King and Bobo Evans rob a Harlem drug store, killing its owner. The least guilty of the three, Steve is nonetheless labeled a monster for this terrible crime. However, it is the prison system that seems most at fault in creating monsters. Steve, an aspiring filmmaker, tries to cope with his trial by imagining the events as scenes in a movie. Fortunately for Steve, the court grants him another chance, though King receives a prison sentence. Myers offers a telling critique of the justice system that swallows up young African American men, who are already disadvantaged by society. Monster is intended for young adult readers with the necessary maturity to deal with the raw material of the story.
