BAD BOY: A Memoir

Walter Dean Myers, . . HarperTempest/Amistad, $6.95 (224pp) ISBN 978-0-06-447288-3

"Myers paints a fascinating picture of his childhood growing up in Harlem in the 1940s, with an adult's benefit of hindsight," wrote PW. "What emerges is a clear sense of how one young man's gifts separate him from his peers, causing him to stir up trouble in order to belong." Ages 13-up. (May)
