Darnell Rock Reporting

Walter Dean Myers

Darnell Rock is not the kind of kid who volunteers to write for the newspaper–it sounds too much like homework. But this is Darnell’s last chance to pull himself together and make a positive contribution to his school. At first, Darnell would rather be hanging out with his sister and his friends. But soon he gets interested in the “Oakdale Gazette.” Much to his surprise, Darnell discovers that people pay attention to the words he writes. Before he knows it, Darnell changes from a kid who can’t do anything right to a person who can make a difference.

Joseph

Joseph

For Joseph Flood, life is tough. Tough because of Mama’s addiction to drugs and alcohol. Tough because Daddy is away with the army fighting in Iraq. Tough because it looks like there’s no way out once you’re living in a homeless shelter in a North Carolina ghetto neighborhood. And tough because Joseph is enrolled in yet another new school where he doesn’t know anyone and has to keep what’s going on in his life a secret.

Joseph struggles to keep Mama clean and to hold their broken family together while trying to make new friends and join the school tennis team. How can a boy who’s only fifteen years old win his daily battle to survive?
