Darius & Twig - Walter Dean Myers

Darius & Twig (Amistad, $17.99) are friends who share an impulse to escape. Darius does so by imagining a peregrine falcon soaring above him and the city’s skyline, but even more so through his writing. Twig escapes by running on the track team, training constantly to get a better time. Both boys dream of winning scholarships and leaving Harlem and their family troubles for college. The prolific and talented Walter Dean Myers, author of over a hundred titles, including the multiple-award–winner Monster, and current National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, wrote Darius & Twig in response to fan requests for a book about friendship. Ages 14-18. EAE
