Author(s): Walter Dean Myers
For the very first time in his decades-long career writing "for" teens, acclaimed and beloved author Walter Dean Myers writes "with" a teen, Ross Workman. Kevin Johnson is a great kid and skilled soccer player. With attitude. Then he ends up in jail. Sergeant Brown is a tough cop and Kevin's mentor. With attitude. If Kevin and Brown can learn to trust each other, they might be able to turn things around. Before it's too late.
