Description: Who would ever have thought that celebrated author Walter Dean Myers was once a troublemaker and a truant? Margaret A. Edwards winner Myers recalls growing up in Harlem in the 1940s and 1950s -- when seeing Langston Hughes and Sugar Ray Robinson on the street was the norm and Jackie Robinson ruled the baseball field. Myers loved books, and by high school, he longed to become a writer. But financial troubles at home led him to drop out of high school. How did he manage to pursue his dreams?

Gripping. Funny. Heartbreaking. Walter Dean Myers's memoir is unforgettable. From bad boy to role model, here in his own words is the story of one of the strongest voices in children's and young adult literature today.
