review 1: I have to start off by saying that i'm not much of a reader. I normally can't get into books like I did with this one. I thought that I would just read the first couple pages then be done. I was completely wrong. I could not stop reading. It was easy for me to relate to Darius be...

review 1: This was the first time I read anything from Myers and even thought it seemed like an easy, quick read, it took me a good time to think about all that was being said. Besides a nice little story this book teaches us a bit of history, sociology, and philosophy. It's a great read f...

review 1: As Jeremy adds to his long list of words that describe him (whether a little brother, a son, a writer, runner, dreamer or dancer") and fist bumps his family, teachers, and friends with a "BAM," it's hard not to smile at this empowering manifesto of a young boy who is celebrating ...

review 1: Amiri and Odette is a modern retelling of “Swam Lake” with Amiri as a popular, basketball player “prince” who has fallen in love with a doomed “swan” who is tied to a drug-dealer. Myers employs a sentence-fragment poetry format paired with Steptoe’s sometimes bright and sometime...

review 1: I'm really baffled by this book. Normally, Myers wrote clear, believable characters in solid settings, but this one came across as a half-baked dystopian novel that slipped out unedited.The setting, twenty years into an unpleasant future, assumes that current trends of "the rich ...
